DELF Junior: a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for secondary school students, i.e. young people aged from 12 to 17 years.
Also open to all 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, 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, A2, B1 & B2
For further information about DELF and DALF, visit the CIEP website.
Examination Centre: unless clearly advised otherwise, all exams are organised at HK Scout Centre and Alliance Française, Jordan, during business hours.
Please note that candidates will not be able to choose their oral examination date.
They will receive an email one week before the examinations at the latest to inform them of the precise day and time of their exam.
Results are emailed to you about one month after sitting the test. After this, you will then receive emails advising you when your certificate and diploma have arrived - certificates require a few weeks after test results and diplomas require a few months - so that you can come and pick them up in St Kilda. If you cannot come and pick them up, we can arrange to have them mailed to you: you will need to provide us with an A4 Registered Post envelop with your name and address on it.
Results assigned by national juries are final. If you failed the exam, you may apply to have a look at your exam paper within two weeks
of your results being emailed to you. It can only be organised by appointment at our premises in Jordan. To apply, please email .... at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note that DELF Prim examiners and markers are all trained and authorized by the CIEP. They follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored.
