DELF Preparation

Prepare for University Studies in French
The DELF diploma (Diplôme d’études en langue française) is designed to assess French students' communicative skills, through authentic documents. It taps into practical knowledge rather than standard grammatical knowledge. It is recognized internationally.


The DELF diploma is composed of 4 units: A1- A2 - B1 - B2. There is an exam for each unit. Successfully completing DELF A1 and A2 indicates an ability to communicate in everyday situations. Successfully completing DELF B1 and B2 indicates an ability to defend one's opinion, develop a solid argument and self-correct

ILSC-Montréal offers DELF preparation courses at all levels, upon request. Each unit is offered in a 3 hour-class, 5 days a week for 4 weeks. It is important to specify to the registrar, prior to your arrival, that you are planning on following a DELF preparation course and which unit you wish to pass. If you are not certain of which unit corresponds to your level, an assessor from ILSC will get in touch with you to discuss it.

Exams must be taken in official examination centres. The only official centre in Montréal is McGill University. You can consult the website for examination dates and payment arrangements: http://www.mcgill.ca/conted/langprg/delfdalf/. Candidates must register one week prior to the examination period.
