DELF Exam Information

The DELF is an internationally recognized diploma that certifies a student’s level of proficiency in French as a second language




The DELF is a diploma issued by the French Ministry for National Education to certify the language skills of learners of French as a second language.  The results of these exams are valid indefinitely and the diploma is a diploma for life.


The DELF examination is recognized around the world.  It can add value to a portfolio and is a recognition of a student’s years of study in a Core French or French Immersion program.


In Canada, more than 30,000 Canadians have taken DELF exams over the past few years.  As a result, the DELF examinations are becoming more well-known and receiving greater recognition from employers and educational institutions. DELF results replace a French language placement test in some Canadian universities.


The DELF exams are organized according to four levels of French language proficiency. Students can choose the level they wish to obtain.

Students should consult with their French teacher to help them make this decision.


There is a cost associated with the test and diploma: (Levels A-1, A-2 and B-1 will be offered in this testing session)


Levels A-1 and A-2              $100.00


Levels B-1 and B-2              $175.00


These fees are established by pan-Canadian DELF committees and are the same in most school districts in Canada where the DELF is available.


Students who write the DELF test and who receive a 50% overall grade, with not less than 5/25 in any section, will receive their diploma before the end of this school year.


The DELF examinations will be held during the week of  April 23-26, May 7-10 2018. All students who choose to write the DELF will complete the exam here at the school.
