Delf Prim  

Start with a diploma!

: a specially adapted version of the DELF diplomas for children who are beginners in French and who are of primary school age.

Description & structure

Issued by the French Ministry of Education, internationally recognised and valid for life.

Divided into three diplomas corresponding to the first two levels of the Common European Reference Framework for Languages: A1.1, A1, and A2.

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.


A1.1  -  $150

A1  -  $150

A2  -  $170

Next session & registration dates

Examination Centre: unless clearly advised otherwise, all exams are organised at Alliance Française.

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

Note that DELF Prim examiners and markers are all trained and authorized by the CIEP. They follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored.
