If you are seeking a desirable employment opportunity with a French-speaking company the DELF or DALF certificate can be the key to helping you stand out as an employable candidate.

A DELF certificate may be required when applying to French post-secondary institutions. Here in Canada, certain post-secondary institutions with French programs may require a DELF certificate upon registration.
Finally, a DELF certificate can help you validate your language skills on your learning journey.

The DELF Prim can be your child’s first French diploma and show them that they can actually speak French and boost their confidence.
