The DELF/DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education and are recognized around the world. These diplomas are official certifications of second language proficiency. The DELF/DALF tests students’ ability to use French in real life situations.

DELF/DALF is composed of 6 independent diplomas that correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CECRL). The 6 diplomas that make up DELF/DALF are completely independent. This means that candidates can prep for the examination of their choice, according to their level. At each level, the following 4 skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.


6 Independent Diplomas

Avoiding Conflict of Interest

All our instructors are required to avoid any activity that creates actual or potential conflict of interest with My French Club. We ask students to refrain from requesting their teacher’s services outside of My French Club in order to safeguard their teacher’s contract. Requesting such services from their teachers also make them feel very uncomfortable! We kindly ask that you respect the teachers’ contract with My French Club and thank you in advance for your cooperation.
