French Diplomas - DELF/DALF

The DELF - DALF exams (DELF is the acronym for Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française, DALF means  Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official French proficiency diplomas administered by the French Government and the French Ministry for Education.

Why take the DELF/DALF exam ? 

The  DELF/DALF diplomas are official French language certifications for non-native speakers administered by the French Ministry for Education and recognised in 165 countries.

A DELF diploma is required to apply to French universities and is a great asset to show on your CV. Each year, over 300,000 students register to take the DELF exams. There are 6 levels available, from beginner to advanced. You can register to take several levels during the same exam session... and  your results are valid for life!

What diplomas should I take?

The 6 DELF and DALF diplomas are independent from one another, so you can take the examination of your choice. You can also sit the examination for a number of diplomas during the same examination session. If you are studying at Alliance or not, please refer to the level and examinations description  HERE in order to decide which exam level you should sit for.
