DELF Scolaire: A diploma for your future!

Are you a Grade 12 student studying French at District School Board Ontario North East?

If you are, the DELF diploma is a valuable proof  of competency to include in your resume. The DELF exam is an opportunity for our students currently taking a Gr. 12 FSL course to demonstrate French-language skills and to be rewarded with a certificate that will enhance any resume. The DELF exams are recognized worldwide and upon successful completion, students will be awarded a certificate of competency which will never expire. The DELF represents official proof that your French language skills are at a standard expected by future post-secondary school or employees requiring the ability to communicate in French with their clients. Many students have expressed their appreciation for being able to challenge the DELF and graduate with a globally recognized certificate in their portfolio. Click here to learn more.

The DELF exams are offered annually to DSB Ontario North East students. To register, you can speak to your FSL teacher or school principal. You can also contact the board office for more information.
