DELF Scolaire

DELF Scolaire

What is the DELF Scolaire?


Since 1 September 2005, the National Commission for DELF and DALF has been offering a version of DELF for teenagers in state and private schools. Since being launched locally in 2013, DELF Scolaire has been growing steadily, now offered in over 30 schools.

DELF scolaire is coordinated in New Zealand by the French Embassy in partnership with the Alliance Française network.

By having your school join this programme as an accredited examination centre or a participating school, you can give students of French from Year 10 to Year 13 the opportunity to gain an internationally recognised qualification issued by the French Ministry of Education. Candidates register directly through their French teacher. If your school doesn’t offer French as a subject, candidates can also sit the equivalent DELF Junior exam at their local Alliance Française.

General conditions

  • The introduction of DELF for schools is subject to an agreement being signed by the local education authorities and the French embassy.
