French Language Assessment



Make your CV stand out with a French diploma!

What are the DELF and DALF?
The DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are the only official French language proficiency qualifications.

The DELF-DALF qualifications are administered and awarded by the French Ministry of Education and are available in different versions suited to a wide range of candidates: primary school students, secondary school students and adults.

These exams assess four skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing.

There are 6 levels to choose from: the DELF is for beginners and intermediate learners, both teenagers and adults, and the DALF is for those who have more advanced knowledge.

There are three exam sessions per year.

Each level is assessed with a separate exam and successful candidates are awarded a diploma indicating which level they have passed.

Why should I take a DELF-DALF exam?

  • The diploma you receive is awarded by the French Ministry of Education.
  • It is valid for life and recognised internationally.
  • It will boost your employability by making your CV stand out.
  • It will help you find jobs throughout the French-speaking world.
  • It may be an entry requirement for study in a French University or High School.

Are there any special exams for children and teenagers?
There are specially tailored DELF exams for children and teenagers. We can also help schools organise exam sessions at their own location and train teachers to become accredited DELF examiners. Please contact your local examination centre for more information
