Tuesday evening, December 17, our current CM2 students attended the DELF diploma ceremony. The DELF (Diplôme d'études en Langue Française) is a certification of French-language abilities for non-native speakers of French administered by the International Centre for French Studies (Centre International d’études Pédagogiques, or CIEP) for France's Ministry of Education. It is composed of four independent diplomas corresponding to the first four levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: A1, A2, B1 and B2.
All 5th grade students received their DELF certificates after passing the accompanying exam during the previous school year. The qualifying DELF exam consists of four sections, listening, reading, writing and speaking, on which all students scored above 90%. DELF certificates are valid for life and do not expire. Congratulations to all the CM2 students on this amazing accomplishment!
