The DELF (Diplôme d'Études en Langue Française) is an official diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French language competency of candidates from outside France.

The DELF is composed of four individual certificates that have been harmonized with the European standards corresponding to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CECRL).

Examinations are independent, and candidates can register for the examination of their choice. Each examination evaluates the four communication skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking.

An average grade of 50 out of 100 points for each part of the exam is required to obtain the DELF A1, A2, B1 and B2 diplomas.

DELF A1

The A1 user has basic knowledge at this level, also called the "discovery" stage. The user can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment.

DELF A2

The A2 level recognizes the linguistic competency of a basic user, considered as a social actor. The candidate can communicate about simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information.

DELF B1

The B1 user becomes independent. He/she can maintain interaction: he/she can understand and partake in a discussion and give his/her opinion. He/she is capable of dealing with situations likely to arise in daily life.

DELF B2

The B2 user has a degree of independence that allows him/her to construct arguments to defend his/her opinion, explain his/her viewpoint and negotiate. At this level, the candidate has a degree of fluency and spontaneity in regular interactions and is capable of correcting his/her own mistakes.
