DELF-DALF All Audiences (DFP)


DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language.

These certificates are valid for life. DELF and DALF consist of six independent certificates that correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Important Note: As of July 2015, only two tests—TCF ANF and TEF ANF—are recognized by the French government to certify the level of French of persons applying for French Citizenship.
