DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française)

The DELF (Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française), along with the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are officially recognised diplomas for French as a foreign language which are issued by the French Ministry of Education. The assessment is equivalent to the competency levels of the Common European Framework for Learning and Teaching Languages. Yearly about 300.000 candidates take the DELF- and DALF exams in 965 test centres in 163 countries. Since December 6, 2011 the DEFL exam is recognised as language proof for immigrants to Quebec  by the immigration office as long as at least 16 of the 25 total points have been achieved in the segments “compréhension orale” and  “expression orale”.

In Germany you can take the DELF – and DALF- test at ELOQUIA Frankfurt or the different Instituts français. ELOQUIA offers both the DELF tous public and the DELF Pro in its own testing centre. For the  DELF junior or scholaire please contact your closest Institut français.

DELF Pro informations

In 2009, the French Ministry of Education created a professional version of the DELF diploma (Diploma for French as a Foreign Language): the DELF option professionnelle (DELF PRO)
The DELF Pro is aimed at those whose goal is a professional promotion or integration into a French speaking environment. Every candidate, whether that be with basic or advanced knowledge, can take the exam.

The DELF Pro assesses the communication skills needed  for all aspects of professional life. The examination topics are based on the world of work. There are four independent diplomas which correspond to the first four levels (A1 – B2) of the Common European Framework (GER). There are no entry requirements: candidates can take the examination of their choice.
