Delf & Dalf

The premier international certification for measuring French proficiency.


The DELF (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify candidates' proficiency in French. These diplomas are recognized by many institutions and universities around the world and DELF-DALF exams centres are now present in more than 170 countries.

The DELF B2 level gives access to programs in French in most francophone universities in France. It is now widely integrated to French curriculum in secondary school in Alberta.

The DELF and DALF diplomas are independent from each other, so candidates register directly for the examination of their choice without taking the previous levels. At each level, four skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

To see a detailed overview of the DELF/DALF examinations, sample exams and examples of students' work, you can visit the official website dedicated to the DELF/DALF examinations in Canada: http://delf-dalf.ambafrance-ca.org

The Alliance Française regularly offers preparation classes for the DELF exams. Contact us for more information.

If you are under 18, it is recommended to write the DELF junior examination. The junior version of DELF has the same basic structure as the standard DELF. Only the topics are different: the materials take into account the interests of young people. It can only be taken by children of secondary-level age. The diploma awarded is identical to the standard DELF diploma. Click HERE for more information.
