UGDSB students challenge the DELF, an internationally recognized French diploma
June 1, 2018
GUELPH, Ontario – Senior students in the Upper Grand District School Board have successfully challenged the DELF, earning a diploma that is recognized around the world.
The DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) Scolaire is a diploma issued by the French Ministry of National Education in recognition of French-language studies. DELF examinations are an opportunity for high school students to demonstrate their French-language skills and to be rewarded for their hard work at school.
Beyond just personal satisfaction, the DELF represents official proof of a student’s French-language skills in a way that Francophone universities, French grandes écoles, and future employers can appreciate.
The DELF tests proficiency in four skill areas: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, written production, and spoken production and interaction.
This spring, 91 senior level UGDSB students enrolled in Core French and French Immersion challenged the DELF, with a 94% success rate. Thirty-tree teachers from elementary and secondary schools who are certified DELF Correcteurs also participated in the examination as evaluators.
Congratulations to all the participants!
