​​DELF Pro A1 presentation

It is no longer possible to take the DELF Pro A1. Indeed, France Éducation international has put an end to this version of the DELF A1. Instead, we advise you to take the DELF A1 Tout Public. For all practical purposes and for archival purposes, we keep our articles on the DELF Pro.

DELF Pro A1 constitutes the first level of DELF Pro. With regard to a French-speaking professional context, DELF Pro A1 aims to assess if you are able:

- to integrate you into a new professional environment when you arrive in a new company.

- To make administrative formalities and to realize your first tasks with various workstations.

DELF Pro A1 examination is based on level A1 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
