So you have been learning French for a while… How about putting your knowledge to the test? We believe that if you prepare for the DELF/DALF with FrenchSoEasy, you will pass it with flying colours!

Important facts about the DELF/DALF exams.

The DELF is a test of French language skills for non-native speakers of this language. There are 4 levels: A1, A2, B1 and B2. Typical for language examinations, right?

It consists of 4 parts:

  1. Listening. Candidates listen to recordings and answer comprehension questions. The number and length of the recordings vary and depend on the language level.

This section takes 20-30 minutes, also depending on the level.

Visit our YouTube channel to see examples:

2. Reading. No major surprises here. Candidates are asked to read short texts and answer questions of different types. True or false and multiple-choice among them.

Again levels determine how long the texts are. The length of this part? 30-60 minutes.

Here's an example of a DELF A2 reading part:

3. Writing. To excel in this section, you need the skills to fill in a document with different data. Or describe an event or experience. Knowing how to write an essay and express an opinion will also be useful. Which task will be for you? This depends on your French level. Duration is 30-60 minutes. Another example of DELF A2:

4. Speaking. At the lower levels (A1 and A2), some of the tasks are guided conversation and role-play. B1 and B2 candidates will need to prepare for a longer discussion

and stating their opinions.

The DELF exam consists of 100 marks. You must score at least 50 in total and 5 of 25 in each part. To pass, of course ☺
