The DILF is an official diploma of the French Ministry of Education validating a first level of mastery of French (level A1.1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe). It assesses the communicative and linguistic content described in the Référentiel pour les premiers acquis en français.
The Diplôme Initial de Langue Française (DILF) can be offered to all those who have a minimum level of French language skills: absolute beginners in French as a foreign language and newcomers to France, who often have little or no schooling in their own country, and who may not be able to read or write. Candidates for the DILF must be at least 16 years old on the date of the first test.
The DILF is one of the Ministry of Education's diplomas in French as a foreign language. It is a first step towards the DELF and DALF.
The DILF exams consist of four tests which assess the following language skills: oral reception, written reception, oral production and written production.
Because of the level assessed (A1.1), oral reception and production are given priority: 70 points for the oral tests and 30 points for the written tests.
The 4 tests of the exam take place on the same day:
|Oral reception||25 minutes|
|Written reception||25 minutes|
|Oral production||10 minutes|
|Written production||15 minutes|
All year round. Our centres in Rouen and Le Havre organise all the sessions on the national calendar.
