Receive international recognition of your French language competency.
Assess your level of French on an international scale.

The FLRC offers different DELF sessions throughout the year. Typically the DELF for Schools sessions are offered in November and April, the DELF Prim sessions in December and May and the Standard Version session in March. The FLRC website will have the most up-to-date information.
The FLRC uses funds through OLEP (Official Languages in Education Program) to offer the DELF for Schools and Prim at no cost to the candidates; however, there is a nominal fee of $50 for the Standard Version.
There are four components to the DELF exam; listening comprehension, reading comprehension, written production and oral production. The first three components are completed at the same on the date of the exam. The oral production component is completed after the written and with two certified examiners.
 
Each of the four components is out of 25 points. To obtain the diploma, the candidate must score at least 50 out of 100 and at least 5 points out of 25 per component. If the candidate receives fewer than 5 points on any component, they have automatically failed this attempt.
A range of accommodations are available to candidates. Please contact the FLRC for more information.
