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 CIEP 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 - $125
    • A2 - $125
    • B1 - $195
    • B2 - $195


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