French and Francophone Studies

Brown DELF Testing Center

The Department of French and Francophone Studies opened a DELF Testing Center in Spring 23 to provide French learners the opportunity to certify their language proficiency level.

DELF is a French acronym that means Diploma in French language studies (“Diplôme d’études en langue française” in French) and this diploma is awarded by the French Ministry of Education to demonstrate the proficiency across the 4 communication skills of non-French candidates (French learners). More precisely, it is a global assessment that validates communication skills in French as a foreign language, and this certification is internationally recognized.

DELF Info Session: Monday, February 12, 2024 | 5-6pm | Music Room, 84 Prospect St.
