DELF: Diplôme Elémentaire de Langue Française/Diploma in French language, A1 to B2 levels.
DALF: Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française/Advanced Diploma in French language, C1 and C2 levels.
Divided into six diplomas corresponding to the scale of the Common European Reference Framework for Languages: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
Issued by the French Ministry of Education, internationally recognised and valid for life.
Alliance Française de Melbourne: the only accredited institution in Melbourne that delivers these diplomas.
Designed to assess the communicative skills of a candidate in a real-life situation, using authentic documents, rather than the linguistic and formal grammatical knowledge.
Four skills are evaluated through two examinations:
collective examination: listening, reading, writing;
individual examination: speaking.
DELF B2 and DALF C1 allow foreign students to obtain admission into a French university.
DELF B1-level in speaking and listening is required to apply for French citizenship.
For further information about DELF and DALF, visit the CIEP website.

Results are emailed to you about one month after sitting the test. After this, you will then receive emails advising you when your certificate and diploma have arrived - certificates require a few weeks after test results and diplomas require a few months - so that you can come and pick them up in St Kilda. If you cannot come and pick them up, we can arrange to have them mailed to you: you will need to provide us with an A4 Registered Post envelop with your name and address on it.
Results assigned by national juries are final. If you failed the exam, you may apply to have a look at your exam paper within two weeks of your results being emailed to you. It can only be organised by appointment at our premises in St Kilda. To apply, please email Margaux Josse at email@example.com.
Note that DELF/DALF examiners and markers are all trained and authorized by the CIEP. They follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored.
Read through the information on this page carefully.
You will receive an email confirming your registration.
You will receive your exam schedule by email one week before the examinations at the latest.
