Take a test or a certification to prove your proficiency

Alliance française chapters offer a wide range of exams, from French tests to globally acknowledged academic and business qualifications accepted by employers and further education institutions in many countries. The French language examinations correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) and range from A1 for beginners to C2 for language skills at the highest level.

·DELF and DALF All Audiences

The DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française) are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify foreign candidates’ proficiency in French. The DELF B2 affords access to all French universities and to an ever-growing number of European and francophone universities, eliminating the need for pre-admission French language tests.

The DELF and the DALF certificates are made up of 6 independent diplomas corresponding to the 6 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CECR): DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1, and DALF C2.

The exams are divided into two parts: listening comprehension, written production, and written comprehension are tested in a written exam, while speaking and oral interaction are tested in a one-on-one exam.

·Test of Proficiency

TEF and TCF are reliable measurements for determining proficiency and are only valid for a period of time. Diplomas are similar to University degrees in that they confirm language proficiency and are valid for life.

All examinations can also be taken by external candidates if they have reached the corresponding language level. It is nevertheless recommended that you take a preparatory course in one of our examination centers.
