What is the DELF?

Based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, the Diplôme d’Études en Langue Française (DELF) are awarded by the French Ministry of Education. They are official French language proficiency qualifications and they are valid for life. These diplomas are internationally recognized.

Four skills are evaluated through two examinations:

  • Collective examination: listening, reading, writing;
  • Individual examination: speaking.

Results are emailed to you about approximatively one month and a half after sitting the test. After this, you will then receive emails advising you when your certificate and diploma have arrived - certificates require a few weeks after test results and diplomas require a few months - so that you can come and pick them up at the reception.

The publication of DELF-DALF diplomas is the responsibility of the FEI, which is located in Paris. The certificate should allow you to undertake the necessary administrative procedures while waiting for the official diploma. Official diplomas can take several months to arrive at our office because they are published in France and are, then, sent by post.

Results assigned by national juries are final. If you failed the exam, you may apply to have a look at your exam paper within two weeks of your results being emailed to you. It can only be organised by appointment at our premises. To apply, please email

Note that DELF/DALF examiners and markers are all trained and authorized by France Education International. They follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored.
