The DELF/DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education and are recognized around the world. As an official certification of second language proficiency, the DELF/DALF tests the ability of students 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.
- Basic: DELF A1 , DELF A2
DELF A1: The A1 user has basic knowledge at this level. The user can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment. Test Duration: 1 h 20 min
DELF A2: The A2 level recognizes the linguistic competency of a basic user, considered as a social actor. The candidate can communicate about simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information. Test Duration: 1 h 40 min
- Independent: DELF B1, DELF B2
DELF B1: The B1 user becomes independent. He/she can maintain interaction: he/she can understand and partake in a discussion and give his/her opinion. He/she is capable of dealing with situations likely to arise in daily life. Test Duration: 1 h 45 min
DELF B2: The B2 user has a degree of independence that allows him/her to construct arguments to defend his/her opinion, explain his/her viewpoint and negotiate. At this level, the candidate has a degree of fluency and spontaneity in regular interactions and is capable of correcting his/her own mistakes. Test Duration: 2 h 30 min
- Advanced: DALF C1, DALF C2
DALF C1: Language users at level C1 are independent. They can express themselves fluently and spontaneously. They have a large vocabulary and can choose the appropriate expression to introduce their comments. They can produce clear, well-structured discourse without hesitation and show controlled use of structures.
DALF C2: C2 users’ proficiency in the language is illustrated by precision, appropriateness and fluency of expression. C2 candidates are capable of using the language for academic and advanced-level purposes.

Avoiding Conflict of Interest
All our instructors must avoid any activity that creates an actual or potential conflict of interest, and avoid any situation that may even present the appearance of a conflict of interest with My French Club. We ask you, that in order to safeguard our teacher’s contract, to refrain from requesting their services outside of My French Club. It also makes them feel very uncomfortable!
