DELF & DALF

DELF (Diplôme d'Etude de Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are the only diplomas in French as a foreign language delivered by the French Ministry of Education and are recognised worldwide.

DELF (6 Units) normally leads to DALF (4 Units), which enables you to enter any French University without any further examination.

It is generally considered that preparing for one unit requires approximately 100 hours of learning.

These examinations will be held at the Alliance Française de Brisbane and are open to any students who have completed the Advanced level or who have been assessed as having the appropriate level.

You can read more about DELF & DALF here.
