DELF and DAEFLE diplomas

Want to prove how well you can speak French?

Try the DELF exam. What is it?

The Diplôme d'études en langue française or DELF for short, is a diploma of French language-abilities for non-native speakers of French administered by France Education International for France's Ministry of Education. There are four independent diplomas corresponding to the first four levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages: A1, A2, B1 and B2. 

Above this level, the "Proficient User" divisions (C1 and C2) are certified by the DALF

DELF is not a certificate but a qualification that's valid for life.

Approved by a team of educational psychologists, the DELF is based on current topics and real-life situations and is recognised internationally.

At the Alliance Francaise Hamilton we hold "DELF tout public" (DELF for all students) sessions twice a year: in May and in October.
