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... and  your results are valid for life!

What diplomas should I take?

The DELF/DALF is divided into six diplomas corresponding to the scale of the Common European Reference Framework for Languages: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.

You can also sit the examination for a number of diplomas during the same examination session.
