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.
