The DALF tests are used to prove high-level proficiency in French. This category will explain how the tests are scored and we’ll give you our tips on how to prepare to reach your target score.
The DALF C1 test is divided into four parts for the four language skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. Each section is scored out of 25, making the test worth 100 points. You must have at least 50/100 to get the diploma, but a score lower than 5/25 on any of the four sections means you will fail automatically.
Find out how to take notes effectively, plan your speech and essay using an outline, and how to build your vocabulary through reading and revising.
The DALF C2 combines Listening & Speaking into one part, then Reading & Writing into another part. Like the C1 level, you need to score greater than 50/100 and no lower than 10/50 on any part to earn your DALF diploma.
We’ll tell you tips on how to practice active listening, how to plan your speech through role-playing, then how to construct a winning essay to score valuable points and give yourself the edge for DALF success!
