Take The DELF In France

While you are studying French here at Azurlingua you will also have the opportunity to pass the DELF-exam. This is a exam in the French language that is approved by the French Ministry of Education and also internationally recognized. It’s great it you want to study at a French university or work in a French-speaking country. How far the DELF-exam is sufficient depends on what level of the exam you have taken. If you are taking a DALF C1 or C2 (the test is called DALF for the higher levels C1 and C2) it’s sufficient to demonstrate your skills in French for entrance into a French universities. If you take a lower level it can still be very helpful for some universities or job applications. If you have a DELF or DALF degree you don’t have to do the universities’ entrance exams in French, which otherwise is required for foreign students.

Whether you are studying French in France or in another country, you can take the exam on an exam-center several times a year, to get an exact date you will have to contact your local exam-center. You can find the approved exam-centers in your country here.

The DELF consists of six different parts or levels that correspond with the six levels of the Council of Europe’s language proficiency scale. The six exams’ are independent of each other and therefore you choose for yourself which level you want to do. The levels are A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2, where A1 is a person who has basic knowledge of the language and C2 a person who speaks the language fluently.

For DELF A1-B2 and DALF C1, there are four different exams, each one giving up 25 points. For DALF C2 there are the two subsamples. Each one of maximum 50 points. The exams take a total of between 1 hour and 20 minutes up to 4 hours depending on level. All levels, except DALF C2, requires at least 5 out of 25 correct answers on each test and at least 50 out of 100 correct answers in order to pass the entire exam.

If you study French at Azurlingua you will have the opportunity to take a preparing course for the DELF. You will then get to do practice tests and prepare in different ways, which will give you a bigger chance of passing the DELF. If you take a preparing course it will end with the exam. You can take the test both in France and in other countries. The price is between 100 – 200€, depending on the level.

She lived in the French Riviera, just like me! She held dual citizenship with a European nation, just like me! Sure, she […]

Culture Shock in France

I’m someone who travels quite a bit, having lived in South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia for most of the last several years, and I have always enjoyed learning about different cultures along the way. After all that more “exotic” travel, you can imagine how I let myself believe that moving to France would […]
