​This level recognizes basic knowledge. It is the most basic level at which a language is used, called the “discovery” stage. At this stage, the learner can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment.

DELF A2 is based on the same principle: it recognises the linguistic competency of a basic user, considered as a social actor. The candidate can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information.

The specifics of the DELF exam – Going beyond simple linguistic knowledge!

The DELF does not only assess your level of French. It also assesses the candidate’s knowledge of how to use the language, their social skills and their ability to learn within a linguistic, sociolinguistic and pragmatic framework. The candidate should pay attention to the way in which they express themselves, as well as the way in which they interact with others, during the activities presented in each test.

The DELF Tout Public is reserved for older teenagers and adults between levels A1 to B2.


At each level, the following competencies are assessed:
  • Oral comprehension
  • Written comprehension
  • Written production
  • Oral maintenance
The minimum grade to obtain the diploma is 50 out of 100 (eliminatory grade: less than 5 out of 25 in one of the assessed competencies).
