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.
