Preparing for French Exams in Marseille

EIM offers a programme to prepare for exams in order to enhance student mobility in France and abroad.
You can therefore validate your progress and command of the French language by taking the TCF, DELF or DALF exams.

Exams & Diplomas
These official diplomas are delivered by the French National Ministry of Education through the CIEP (International Centre for Education and Pedagogy) in order to validate French language skills of non-native speakers.

TCF: Test de Connaissance du Français (Knowledge of the French language). This exam allows the French language proficiency of a student to be assessed at any given time. It uses the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment) whose six levels are comprised in between A1-A2 (beginner), B1-B2 (intermediate) and C1-C2 (advanced). This exam is based upon skills in oral and written comprehension as well as written proficiency.

DELF: Diplôme d'Etude en Langue Française (Diploma of French Language Studies). This lifelong validity diploma certifies proficiency for levels A1 to B2.

DALF : Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française (Advanced Diploma of French Language Studies). This lifelong validity diploma certifies proficiency for levels C1 to C2.

The DELF and DALF exams require proficiency in the following four areas: oral comprehension, oral expression, written comprehension and written expression.

EIM also offers preparation courses for the TOEIC and TOEFL English exams. Please contact us for further information regarding English preparatory courses and study programmes
