DELF CERTIFICATION

DELF is an official diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education that certifies the French language competency of candidates outside of France. This diploma is valid for life and is recognized throughout the world.

The DELF exam tests the A1 and A2 levels, which are seen as beginner or “basic”;

The B1 and B2 levels, which are intermediate or “independent.”

The DALF tests C1 and C2, which are referred to as advanced or “proficient.”

  • DELF A-1: This level recognizes basic knowledge. It is the most basic level at which a language is used, called the “discovery” stage. At this stage, the learner can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment.
  • DELF A-2: At this level, the language user is considered a social actor. He/she can communicate with others during simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information.
  • DELF B-1: At this level, the language user becomes independent. He/she can maintain interaction: understanding and maintaining a discussion and giving opinions. The language user is capable of dealing with situations likely to arise in daily life.

The DELF exam/certification is at an extra cost and is held twice a year.

Self-Assessment

To ensure that your child is placed in the correct group and in the interest of their overall success, it is a requirement that each child takes the following online assessment.

Click here to access the assessment. There is no cost to take this assessment.

You will first be asked to select which of the four levels (A1, A2, B1, or B2) you would like to attempt. Please read the description with your child, and select the test that is most reflective of their current abilities. An honest assessment of your child’s abilities helps us to better place them with peers of the same level, and ensure their success in the program. As such, please only complete the assessment once and without outside aides. Once sessions have begun in September, there is the possibility that your child will be asked to change groups should our staff feel that a different level be more appropriate.

Once completing the test, please send a screenshot of the result of the test to frenchacademy@campt.ca with your child’s name, as well as your preferred session based on his or her result. We will assign the spot on a first come first serve basis.
