How can DELF/DALF help me?

Here are some of the ways our past students have enhanced their careers through qualification:

“Passing the DALF turned out to be even more important than I originally realised, because now that I have the exam on my CV, it means that I can have French as a second subject on my teacher training course which starts in September this year. So the DALF has opened up a whole new future for me that I never knew about when I started studying last year.”
Laura Swale
Student of French

“Successfully passing C1 and the Advanced French courses has enabled me to teach French in a local secondary school on the Graduate Teacher Programme. The DALF qualification is very highly regarded. For me, it has meant that I am not only gaining qualified teacher status through the Graduate Teacher Programme but I have also achieved a high enough standard in French to teach it. ”
Miss Emma Williams
Student of French
