                                  Description and Practical Information


The DELF and the DALF are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify
different levels of competency in French as a foreign language.

The DELF and DALF are composed of 6 independent diplomas which correspond to the different levels (4 for the
DELF and 2 for the DALF) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

There are no imposed age restrictions for the DELF and DALF “Tout public”, but candidates for the DELF “Junior”
must be enrolled in a secondary school in order to sit the exam.

At each level, all 4 competencies are tested: reading, writing, listening and speaking, with varying degrees of
interaction and meditation required depending on the level. Candidates may sit an exam at any level they wish and
may sit at several levels in the same session if scheduling permits.

The DELF and the DALF are valid worldwide and for life. They benefit from the recognition enjoyed by all
official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education. Persons may not re-sit an exam at the same level
if they have already obtained a diploma.

Below is an excerpt indicating conditions on nationality for taking the exam. Any foreign national (not French) or
French nationals from a non French-speaking country and educated in foreign secondary or higher level system of
education may sit these examinations.




To have a better understanding of each examination, you may visit the Internet site of the National Commission for
the DELF and DALF: www.ciep.fr

                                                Being prepared
Preparation courses for the DELF are offered upon request. Contact Mme Italia WATKINS-JAN, Chef de Centre
d’Examen and Alliance Administrator for details at italia@afbahamas.org.

                                            Results and Diplomas
Candidates who have successfully passed the exams will receive a “attestation provisoire de réussite” justifying their
results. Final diplomas will be issued by the National Commission (CIEP) in France for the Ministry of Education and
sent to the Alliance Française thereafter for issuance to successful candidates.
