The DELF (Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française) is an official certification awarded by the French Ministry of Education certifying level of fluency in French. The exam results in a diploma that is similar to a university degree and confirms a language proficiency level that is valid for life. This can be useful for school records and college/job applications.

The Alliance Française de St. Louis offers the DELF for adults (DELF tout public), children ages 8-12 (DELF prim), and children/teens ages 12-17 (DELF junior). We offer levels A1.1, A1, A2, B1, and B2; the levels correspond to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The exams are divided into two parts: written and oral. The written exam assesses listening comprehension, written production, and written comprehension. The oral exam assesses speaking and oral interaction in a one-on-one setting.

The cost of the DELF is the same for adults and children: A1 $120, A2 $130, B1 $140, B2 $170.
