Why learning French?

Speaking French is an asset to increase your chances on the international job market in various sectors. Fluency in French is essential for anyone considering a career in international organizations.

Last but not least, French is both the working language and official language in the following structures:

  • UN

  • European Union


  • NATO

  • Olympics International Committee

  • Red Cross International

  • numerous legal authorities

It is also the language of the three headquarters of the European institutions: Strasbourg, Brussels and Luxembourg.

Knowledge of French opens the doors of French companies in France and abroad, particularly in all French-speaking countries such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and the African continent.

It may seem obvious, but French society is more willing to accept a resident who speaks the language of Molière. Even if remarkable progress has been made to give English speakers a chance, you know what you have to do!

Certifications DALF | DELF | TCF

What are the differences?


The DELF and DALF are national diplomas. These tests evaluate your skills in listening comprehension, oral production, written production and oral production. In addition, these diplomas are valid for life and are internationally recognized.


First of all, you need to understand that DALF and DELF are the same exam, just with different levels.

There are 4 levels of diplomas for the first levels: DELF A1, DELF A2, DELF B1 and DELF B2.

However, there are several in form: the DELF tout public and the DELF pro for adults and professionals, the DELF junior / school and prim for minors.

The DALF is suitable for levels C1 to C2.

The DELF/DALF is recommended for people who want to certify their level of French through an official certificate: for administrative purposes or simply for personal challenge!

All information on the DELF and DALF can be found on the France Education International website: HERE

The TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français) certification is a French language proficiency test used to assess the French language skills of non-French speakers. It is organised by the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP) and is recognised by the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research.

It consists of different tests assessing listening, reading, speaking and writing skills.

It is used for admission to study programmes in France, for visa purposes or for professional purposes.

This test does not aim to deliver a certificate of success but to evaluate your level of French by competence. In addition, the test can be taken as many times as needed, with an interval of 30 days.

For more information, please visit the Global-Exam website. Recommended for those who wish to study in France or obtain French nationality.

How do I pass my exam?

In order to prepare for your DELF-DALF exam in the best conditions, we recommend that you prepare in advance. After choosing the certification that best suits your needs (more information) and selecting an appropriate level, contact an exam center (more information) to register.

IESIG-FLE does not take care of this registration, which is independent of the courses.

Then, you will have to prepare your exam carefully.

The diploma of French language studies or the diploma of deepening of the French language cannot be prepared overnight. The tests meet specific criteria that you must master before the day of the exam. To do so, it is necessary to consult the France Education International website to know all the details (more information).
