DELF, junior version

The junior version of the DELF  is based on the same structure as the DELF in its version for all audiences. Only the themes change: the materials take into account  the interests of young people .

It is reserved for a public of school age and gives the right to deliver a diploma identical to the one in the version for all audiences.

The exams are independent and the candidate can register directly in the one they choose. Each exam makes it possible to assess the four communication skills: oral comprehension and expression, written comprehension and expression.
