The DELF (Diploma in French Language Studies) is an official diploma issued by the French Ministry of Education to certify the French skills of foreign students
and French people who come from a non French-speaking country. The DELF certification is valid for life and is useful for school records, as well as college and job applications. There are four independent DELF diplomas, corresponding to the levels A1 through B2.
Examinations for each fluency level are
available for children, teens, and adults. The diploma awarded is the same, corresponding to the level of fluency; the only difference is in the content of the test, which is tailored to the interests of children, teens, or adults.
The Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Boston is organizing a FREE TRAINING course for potential examiners/scorers (examinateurs-correcteurs) of the DELF in New England.
This training will enable teachers to hold examination sessions for the DELF at their schools, giving an international official credential to the students who would sit the exam. These teachers will be trained to examine and grade students for the DELF Prim, aimed at children aged 7 to 12, and for the DELF Junior/Scolaire, for children aged 12 to 17.
The course will take place from Wednesday, August 26 to Saturday, August 29
at the Boston University College of Arts and Sciences. It will consist of 24 hours of training and cover DELF levels A1 through B2.
Participation in the training would imply that the teacher's school is willing to implement the DELF exam in 2016 or 2017. In addition, please note that a minimum of 12 participants
is required in order to hold this course.
Please sign up by completing this form. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, July 1. READ MORE
