DELF & DALF
The DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française) are official certifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education certifying the level of fluency in French. These certificates are used for school records, university admissions and job applications in French-speaking countries. Certificates are valid for life.
The TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français) is required if you want to apply to a French university, submit an immigration application for Quebec, or to assess your French language skills to apply for the French citizenship.
