The DALF is made up of 2 independent diplomas corresponding to the advanced levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: DALF C1 and DALF C2.

Presentation of the tests

The DALF exams consist of several tests to assess the following skills: oral comprehension, written comprehension, written production and oral production.

All the tests were designed in the action perspective as defined in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, where users of a language are considered as social actors having to accomplish tasks (which are not only linguistic) in given circumstances and in a given environment, within a particular field of action, personal, public, educational or professional.

  • He is able to establish an easy and spontaneous communication.
  • He has a wide lexical repertoire and can choose an appropriate expression to introduce his comments.
  • He produces a clear, well-constructed and unhesitating speech that shows the mastered use of structures.
