Enriching our Students’ Knowledge
DELF Program A1 & A2
DELF, Diploma d’Etudes en Language Francaise, junior version is composed of 4 independent diplomas of which qualifications are consistent with the international standards for test development and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. NAC introduces the Delf A1 program for the academic year 2009-210
The 4 diplomas (A1, A2, B1, B2)
At each level, 4 skills are evaluated: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
The DELF is designed to assess the communicative skills of a candidate in a real situation, using authentic documents, and evaluating the know-how (writing a letter, asking for information, exchanging opinions) rather than the linguistic and formal grammatical knowledge. Candidates are capable of using the language for academic and advanced-level purposes.
This level recognizes basic knowledge. It is the most basic level at which a language is used, called the “discovery” stage. At this stage, the learner can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment.
This exam will be for students starting from Grade6 following the regulations of the French Cultural Center.
Students will be evaluated prior to registering for the exam and a fee will be due for the examination as applied by the French Cultural center.(To be announced)
Narmer American College uses Delf certified material approved and recommended by the French Cultural Center in Cairo.
Teachers who are leading this program are certified by the French Cultural center and have obtained certificates authenticated from France By the CIEP (Centre International d’Etudes Pedagogiques.
