DELF Junior / Scolaire


DELF Junior/Scolaire is a diploma issued by the French Ministry of National Education, recognizing French-language studies. While it shares the basic structure with the standard DELF, the topics are tailored to the interests of young people. It is designed for children aged 12 to 18.

DELF exams are globally recognized and provide a lifelong valid diploma for your child. The awarded diploma is identical to the standard DELF certificate. It is widely implemented in Alberta and across Canada, offering independent registration for candidates. The exams assess the four communication skills: reading, listening, writing, and speaking. For a comprehensive overview, sample exams, and student work examples, visit the official website dedicated to DELF examinations in Canada here.

Next sessions

The DELF Scolaire and DELF Junior exams follow the same structure and assess language proficiency equally. However, they differ in administration and candidate eligibility.

DELF Scolaire is organized within schools, either on-site or at AFC, and is specifically designed for students enrolled in those schools. On the other hand, DELF Junior accepts individual candidates who are not taking DELF Scolaire through their school. 

November 2024 - DELF Scolaire only for schools

Schools wishing to organize the DELF scolaire for their students (at their location or at the AFC) must contact Aymeric at education@afcalgary.ca or 403-245-5662 before September 15th to explore the option.

Important Information


The DELF exams take place at Alliance Française of Calgary (AFC):  #350, 1721 29 Avenue SW, Calgary AB T2T 6T7 or at your school if this has been organized with your school. 


If you have a disability or a condition that may require specific accommodations, please inform AFC before registration. All requests for accommodations must be accompanied by supporting documents (doctor's note to specify the nature of the situation and which arrangements must be made to ensure you take the exam in optimal conditions).


A non-refundable $75 fee will be charged in the event of rescheduling before the registration deadline. No refund or change of test date will be accepted if received after the registration deadline.
IMPORTANT: No refund is possible once you are registered for the exam. We advise candidates to register only if they are certain to write the test on the chosen date. 


An official certificate of results will be available from 8 to 12 weeks after the test. Your official diploma will be available for pick-up 6 months after the date of the exam. 


By registering and paying for the examination, you agree to our Terms & Conditions and you certify that you have read all the necessary documents.


An official invitation including the schedule will be sent by email to the candidate a few days before the exam. The schedule of the speaking examination will be given in the official invitation and will usually take place later in the day. Candidates must be available all day for the exam. 


Please arrive 15 minutes before the examination starts. You will not be granted access to the room after the examination starts.
