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. They are the premier international
certification for measuring French proficiency. 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.
