Whenever possible, we will try to schedule your individual speaking test on the same day as your group tests.  If the number of candidates does not allow us to schedule the individual tests the same day as your group tests, your individual test may be scheduled another day either before your group test or the following Saturday or within two weeks of the group tests. For example, DALF C1 individual tests may be scheduled the Wednesday during the DELF B1 exam or Thursday during the DELF B2 exam before the DALF C1 group tests on the Friday or on another day after the DALF C1 group tests.

The schedules will be confirmed once registration is closed.

Can anyone take the exam?

Exams offered by the SFU DELF-DALF Examination Center are intended for current or future students at SFU or UBC.

The DELF tout public and the DALF are intended for adults and young adults whose first language is not French (born in a non French-speaking country and not in possession of a teaching certificate for secondary or postsecondary) and are seeking an assessment of their language proficiency for personal or professional reasons.

Candidates can take the same exam as many times as necessary, until they pass.
However, if you already obtained a diploma and want to take the same level exam again, you must agree to have your previous diploma revoked. A written statement is required before taking the exam. Once your previous diploma revoked, whether you pass or fail the exam subsequently, your previous diploma will no longer be valid.
