DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française)

The DELF (Diploma d’Études en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are, for now, the only by the French Ministry of Education officially recognized diplomas with international recognition.

DALF C1 and C2 for the professional user demonstrate fluent and spontaneous communication at the highest level and include special subjects which the candidates choses.

Candidates with DALF C1 or DALF C2 hardly have to pass any other exams to be admitted to a French university, as DALF allows foreign students admission to French universities without another language test.

Since December 2011, the DALF exam demonstrates language proficiency for those people who want to emigrate to Quebec, as long as the have obtained at least 16 out of 25 points in the listening comprehension and speaking segments.

Informations DALF

On each level all four communication skills – oral and written comprehension, oral and written expression – are tested. There are two versions of each DALF test: “Lettres et Sciences Humaines” and “Sciences”. The listening and reading comprehension segments are identical in both, the differences are only related to the “Production Écrite” and the “Production Orale”. The version  “DALF Sciences” is based on general science rather than technology, with topics ranging from robots in everyday life to climate, healing through music therapy etc.
