Delf Junior  

Prepare the future!

DELF Junior: a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for secondary school students and young people aged from 12 to 17 years. For more information about the DELF exams, visit the France Education International website.

Description & structure

The DELF Junior exam is a French proficiency test developed by the French Ministry of Education, internationally recognized and valid for life.

It is 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.

    The junior version of DELF (12 to 17 years old) has the same basic structure as the standard DELF. Only the topics are different: the materials take into account the interests of young people. It can only be taken by secondary school students.

    The diploma awarded is identical to the standard DELF diploma . The examinations are independent, and candidates can register for the examination of their choice. Each examination evaluates the four communication skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking.
    There are four diplomas for teenagers:

    • A1 - $155
    • A2 - $155
    • B1 - $225
    • B2 - $245

    The prices include $30 admin and registration fee for DELF levels A1, A2, B1, and $50 for DELF B2.

    The DELF Junior is valid for life and recognized as a proof of French proficiency for internships or college applications!

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 at the Alliance française of Edmonton. If you cannot come and pick them up, we can arrange to have them mailed to you: you will need to provide us with a Large (33x25.4cm) prepaid envelop with your name and address on it.
