One of the most highly recognized ways of proving French proficiency is by taking the DELF Exam. Each certificate is made up of individual diplomas for the corresponding levels of CEFR, starting from A1 going up until C2, and students take a different test for each. The DELF Exam has four diplomas (A1 beginner to B2 intermediate) and the DALF only has two (C1 and C2 advanced).

See a full breakdown of the DALF and DELF exam and their diplomas in the Mind Map below:

For the DELF Exam, the diplomas A1 and A2 are for basic or elementary level French proficiency, meaning that the student possesses “survival French.” Then diplomas B1 and B2 show that the student has a good or intermediate knowledge of French and is able to effectively communicate both verbally and written.

The DALF diplomas are more advanced and are only received by highly proficient students. C1 and C2 show that the student is a master of the French language, is totally fluent and has expert communication skills, both written and orally. It also proves that the student possesses knowledge on specialized topics.
