What are DELF and DALF?
DELF and DALF are official certifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify proficiency in the French language of non-native speakers of French. The certificates are internationally recognized and often used by foreign ministries of education (Ministry of Human Resource Development in India) to assess the linguistic skills in the French language.

• They are composed of 6 independent diplomas that correspond to the levels of language proficiency of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). The 6 certifications are completely independent i.e., candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level. At each level, 4 skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Different levels and exams
DELF A1: Breakthrough or beginner
DELF A2: Waystage or elementary
DELF B1: Threshold or intermediate
DELF B2: Vantage or upper intermediate
DALF C1: Effective Operational Proficiency or Advanced
DALF C2: Mastery or proficiency

Four exams are proposed to the French-speaking people:
- Diplôme d'études en langue française, DELF (for all age groups)
- Diplôme approfondi en langue française, DALF (for all age groups)
- Diplôme d'études en langue française for teenagers, DELF JUNIOR
- Diplôme d'études en langue française for professionals, DELF PRO

• In May 2011, the junior version of the DELF certifications called DELF Junior was launched in India by the Embassy of France in India with the aim to enable the young learners of the French language to obtain their first certificate in the language. The DELF junior has the same structure as that of the standard DELF except that the subjects dealt with are adapted to the interests of the young.

DELF junior A1
DELF junior A2 Basic
DELF junior B1
DELF junior B2 Independent

• Similarly, DELF Pro is the professional version of DELF examination and is intended for people aiming at a professional promotion or insertion in a French-speaking environment. Any candidate, in beginner’s class or in in-service training can take it. The topics are adapted to the professional context and environment.
