- DELF and DALF are official certifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify proficiency in the French language of non-native speakers of French. The certificates are internationally recognized and often used by foreign ministries of education (Ministry of Human Resource Development in India) to assess the linguistic skills in the French language.

- They are composed of 6 independent diplomas that correspond to the levels of language proficiency of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). The 6 certifications are completely independent i.e., candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level. At each level, 4 skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

  • DELF A2: Waystage or elementary
  • DELF B1: Threshold or intermediate
  • DELF B2: Vantage or upper intermediate
  • DALF C1: Effective Operational Proficiency or Advanced
  • DALF C2: Mastery or proficiency

Five exams are proposed to the French-speaking people:
