DELF-DALF Official French Diplomas


The University of Oviedo, through La Casa de las Lenguas and in collaboration with Alliance Française of Oviedo, is an official DELF-DALF center for both holding examination and obtaining these diplomas.

The DELF (Diplôme d'Études en Langue Française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official diplomas in French for foreigners issued by the French Ministry of Education, recognized in Spain and implemented in more than 154 countries.

These certifications are adapted to the levels defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages​​: DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1, DALF C2.

These are independent diplomas: the candidate may be submitted directly to the diploma that corresponds to his level without consideration of above level. For each level, the test comprises a listening comprehension section, a reading comprehension section, a writing section and an oral test.
