DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française)

The DELF is an official qualification that is awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside of France in the French language. The DELF is one of six independent diplomas that correspond to the six levels of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The DELF assesses French learners from the A1 level up to the B2 level, covering beginner and intermediate learners. These examinations are based on the interpersonal and learning skills that are part of a person’s ability to communicate in French. Four areas of language use are assessed: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking.

The total duration of all tests is 1 hour 20 minutes. Your total mark is out of 100 with the overall pass mark being 50 out of 100.
