The Durham District School Board will be offering
the DELF again this year to students
who have registered in grade 12 FSL classes (Semester 1 or Semester 2). This exam tests students’ ability to use
French in real-life situations. Successful candidates will receive a DELF
diploma from France’s Ministry of National Education. The diploma is recognized
around the world and is valid for life.
This year's exam will take place during the week of May 6, 2019.
What is DELF?
The Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF) is an internationally recognized test of French proficiency. It is based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which defines language proficiency along six global levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. At each level, proficiency is measured across four competencies: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The French Ministry of National Education awards successful candidates a diploma that is valid for life.
Who can take the DELF?
Students enrolled in a Grade 12 FSL course this year, and who have not previously written the DELF.
