Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF)

The DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) is an internationally recognized test of French proficiency.  It is based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which defines language proficiency along six global levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. At each level, proficiency is measured across four competencies: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The Ministry of National Education in France awards successful candidates a diploma.

Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF)

  • Since 2014, KPR has been pleased to be able to offer our students the opportunity to challenge the DELF 

  • The testing windows for the DELF sessions are chosen by FEI (France éducation internationale)  and communicated to the Ontario Ministry DELF Centre, who in turn communicates these dates and times to school boards

  • Traditionally, registered KPR students challenge the DELF during the April testing window

  • Given the current Health & Safety protocols that all students and teachers are required to follow as a result of the pandemic, KPR’s DELF 2021 will be unable to go ahead as planned

 

The following information was considered in KPR’s decision regarding DELF 2021:

 

  • Students and teachers in Clarington region schools continue to learn and teach from home 

  • The DELF exams require students and trained teachers to be present in real time

  • An online version of the collective DELF exam will not be provided by FEI (posted February 4, 2021)
