DELF Language Proficiency – 2020 Graduate Exam Registration
May 21st , 2021
Registration for the DELF exam for 2020 high school graduates is now closed.
The DELF is an official diploma awarded by the French national ministry of education. The DELF is available in 175 countries and administered by more than 1000 authorized centres, including 40 in Canada. Since its introduction, more than 35 000 Canadians took the « DELF scolaire » (for school-aged students).
As an evaluation of second language proficiency, the DELF officially certifies the ability of students to use French in real-life situations based on the four competence levels identified within the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR). The CEFR was developed by the member countries of the Council of Europe to provide coherence and transparency for the learning, teaching and assessing of languages and can be applied to any language.
Based on this framework, four separate DELF exams exist. Four skills are assessed at each level: listening, reading, writing and speaking. In Prince Edward Island, the DELF scolaire offers exams for three of the four competence levels: A2 (Beginner), B1 (Pre-intermediate) and B2 (Intermediate). The topics within the assessment include a variety of situations which are representative of the linguistic and cultural diversity in the world.
