The diploma in French language studies (DELF) for adults, declination “all public”, is an official diploma issued by the French Ministry of National Education. There are 4 diplomas corresponding to the first 4 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1 and DELF B2.

This diploma is recognized worldwide, and it is valid for life.

Depending on the level passed, the DELF can add value to a curriculum vitae (CV), and make it easier to obtain a job in a company where the spoken language is French.

The DELF B1 allows you to obtain French nationality. The DELF B2, and more and more the DALF C1, allow students to enter French, European or French-speaking universities, and certain Grandes Ecoles.

  • write a simple and brief postcard;
  • answer simple questions about me (for example: my name, my nationality, my activities);
  • ask someone simple questions;
