Test and certify your French-language skills with the DELF (diplôme d’études en langue française: for beginners and intermediate-level learners) and DALF (diplôme approfondi de langue française: for advanced learners) examinations. In 2015, the DELF and DALF examinations were available in 173 countries.
All of the examinations have been designed to reflect the principle of action used by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which defines users of a language as social actors who have tasks to perform (that are not only linguistic) in given circumstances, in a given environment and within a specific area of action, which may be personal, public, academic or professional.
The examinations were therefore created to include the four skills at every level, with varying degrees of interaction and mediation required depending on the level. A mark of at least 50/100 is required in order to be awarded the diploma.
