DELF A2

DELF A2 presentation

Diplôme DELF A2 Tous Publics
DELF A2 is based on the same principle of DELF A1: it recognizes 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. This examination benefits from a very positive evaluation which is not made to sanction but to highlight the French learning.

DELF A2 examination is based on level A2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
