DELF Language Proficiency – 2020 Graduate Exam Registration

April 28, 2021

Registration for the exam is now open for 2020 High school graduate students

The Department of Education and Lifelong Learning announce that registration is now open for the DELF (All Public) session that will be held during the week of June 14 to June 19, 2021 for all 2020 high school graduates wishing to take the exam. Interested 2020 graduates must register before May 21st, 2021 and locations for the exam will be determined later based on availability and geographic convenience.

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.
