Description

Mastering the French Language prepares students to take the Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française (DELF) exam, which is an official qualification that certifies the competency of non-native speakers of French. Candidates are evaluated on their capacity for listening and writing comprehension, and speaking and writing ability. The exam is composed of a written component and an oral interview, and candidates must receive a score of 50 out of 100 to pass the exam. These concepts are taught through a curriculum designed by the Alliance Française Indian Network in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
