Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF)

The DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) is an internationally recognized test of French proficiency.  It is based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which defines language proficiency along six global levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. At each level, proficiency is measured across four competencies: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The Ministry of National Education in France awards successful candidates a diploma.  

How do students know which level of test to take?

The DELF exam is taken in three steps:


Step One: According to the exam schedule, students with the same DELF levels complete the oral comprehension, written comprehension, and written production components.  Please refer to the brochure to see the exam schedule by level.

Step Two: Students individually complete oral production and interaction exams (between April 6th and April 16th). All participants will receive details, including the exact date, time and location of their oral exam, via the contact information provided on the registration form.)

Step Three: Students must pay a $50.00 non-refundable administration fee, payable exclusively through School Cash On-line, at the time of their registration.
