The DELF and DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French language skills of non-French candidates.
DELF stands for Diplôme d’études en langue française (Diploma of French-language studies).
DALF stands for Diplôme approfondi de langue française (Advanced diploma in French language)
The diplomas are valid for life and recognised all around the world
There are six independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the six levels of the Council of Europe's Common
European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
