What is the DELF Pro?

The DELF PRO corresponds to the professional version of the DELF, national diplomas for French as a Foreign Language issued by  the French National Education Ministry. It is meant for people whose objective is a professional insertion or promotion in a French-speaking milieu. Any candidate, undergoing initial or continued training can take the exam.

The DELF Pro assesses common communicative skills in all current professional situations. The subjects of the papers are in keeping with the professional world.

Who can take the diplomas?

Anyone who is not a native French-speaker and who would like his/her French skills to be recognised for personal or professional purposes can take the exams. These diplomas are also recognised by some French universities and Grandes Ecoles as meeting French language requirements for entry. A DELF B2 for undergraduate entry is usually required by French universities and a DALF C1 for postgraduate entry.

What diplomas should I take?

The 6 DELF and DALF diplomas are independent from one another, so you can take the examination of your choice. You can also sit the examination for a number of diplomas during the same examination session. If you are studying at Alliance or not,  please refer to the level and examinations description on this link in order to decide which exam level you should sit for.

If you are not studying with us and if you are unsure of the level you should take a blank test to start with us and we will  advise you of your level.

You can also assess your level online (for reference only): take the CNED test.
