WHY ARE DELF AND DALF SO USEFUL?

What are DELF and DALF ?

DELF stands for Diploma in French studies (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française)

DALF stands for Diploma in Advanced French (Diplôme approfondi en Langue Française).

They have in common to be :

  • the only official certifications of French-language abilities for non-native speakers
  •  administered by France's Ministry of Education.
  • covering all levels in French
  • valid for life

These diplomas provide the candidate with a quality French-level certification, useful to carry out specific personal, academic or professional projects.

The exams are open to non-native speakers, without any set requirements as regards the minimal number of guided-learning hours.

Candidates can take the exams in any country with a French cultural representation, therefore in Estonia too.

Candidates will take the exam of their choice.

DELF and DALF tests are exactly the same worldwide.

They are composed of six independent diplomas corresponding to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages:

• Delf A1, Delf A2, Delf B1, Delf B2
• Dalf C1, Dalf C2

DELF B2 graduates need not take the entrance language-examination to French universities.
