DELF Junior Exam delf dalf tcf france education french examination

Prepare the future

DELF Junior : a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for secondary school students, i.e. young people aged from 12 to 17 years.

Description & structure

DELF Junior French Exam

Open to secondary school students, including also young French citizens who reside in a non-francophone country and who are schooled in local institutions.

Issued by the French Ministry of Education, internationally recognised and valid for life.

Divided into four diplomas corresponding to the first four levels of the Common European Reference Framework for Languages: A1 and A2 (for basic-level users), B1 and B2 (for independent users).

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 (CO), reading (CE), writing (PE);
  • individual examination: speaking (PO).

    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, A2, B1 & B2

    For further information about DELF and DALF, visit the France Education international (formerly CIEP) website.
