What to expect
DELF (French Studies Diploma) and DALF (Advanced French Studies Diploma) exam preparations are suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced level.
The exams are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) which shows learners’ achievements in French. The diplomas are valid in Europe and other countries and are widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency. Therefore they are usually needed to work or study in French speaking countries. They are divided into 6 levels and there are exams for professionals, children, teenagers, adults and students. The level A is for beginners (A1 and A2 for basic user), the level B is for intermediate (B1 and B2 for independent users) and the level C is for advanced (C1 and C2 for proficient users). Based on the level you choose, you will have to purchase a book specialising in the exam. The exam includes 4 parts; writing, listening, reading and speaking. The books are a good opportunity to familiarise yourself with the exam format and to focus on the exam requirements. General French lessons will also be added along the way depending on your needs (grammar, tenses, vocabulary…).
