Language Certifications

Official DELF and DALF diplomas to validate your French level.

The DELF and DALF are official French language proficiency qualifications administered and awarded by the French Ministry of Education. They are available at 6 different levels. The DELF, for beginners and intermediate learners, at A1-A2-B1-B2. The DALF, for advanced-level candidates, at C1-C2. Each exam assesses four skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing.

The benefits of the certifications and diplomas

If not simply for your own personal development, sense of achievement and motivation, the DELF and DALF French Language diplomas are an asset to your CV as they are internationally recognised for both professional job applications and university studies. Unlike other certifications they are valid for life.

DELF B1 and B2 diplomas are accepted if you want to obtain French citizenship and naturalisation.

Holders of the DALF C1 diploma and sometimes the DELF B2 can be exempted from taking an entrance test before enrolling in a French University. For foreign students, the DALF C1 is usually the required gateway to the most prestigious schools or universities.

If you wish to emigrate to Québec or Canada, the eTEFaQ/eTEF Canada are also highly recommended.

Since 2019, we are the only fully accredited centre in Oxford.

We offer the DELF Tout Public levels A2 to B2 (adults), DELF Prim for Primary school students (aged 7 to 11), and DELF Junior Level B1 Secondary school students (aged 12 to 18) at the Alliance Francaise d’Oxford, conveniently located in Central North Oxford, easily accessible from Oxfordshire and beyond. Several sessions are held in person during the year. Please refer to the table below for the sessions held in the near future.
