Dear Parents of Students in Grade 11 and 12 Core French, French Immersion and International Baccalaureate (IB) French Courses:

The North Vancouver School District, in collaboration with Alliance française de Vancouver, would like to offer grade 11 and 12 students enrolled in French programs the opportunity to participate in an international French language assessment. This assessment will give students an opportunity to obtain certification of their competency in the French language.

The Dîplome d’études en langue française (DELF) is an internationally recognized series of qualifications awarded to language learners to validate their skills in French. Through an examination of their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, students can be granted diplomas at various levels. The resulting diploma issued by the French Ministry of Education is valid for life and is a recognized qualification in many educational and business institutions worldwide.

The next series of exams will take place in British Columbia in April 2014. The exams will be administered during the regular school day on the following dates:

Level B2 (French Immersion – FRAL 12) April 7th
Level B1 (French Immersion – FRAL 11, Core or IB French 11 or 12) April 8th
Level A2 (Core or IB French 11 or 12) April 9th

The exams will be administered in North Vancouver at l’École Française International de Vancouver located at 3657 Fromme Road. Written exams will be administered in the morning, and oral exams will be administered, by appointment, in the afternoon. Students will be absent from their regular classes on the day of their exam, and will be responsible for ensuring that all of their teachers are aware of the reason for their absence. Students are also responsible for their own transportation to and from the exam site.

We are hoping that eligible students in grades 11 and 12 will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. While the results of the DELF exam have no impact on the students’ class grades, or on their graduation requirements, students can use their DELF credentials to earn external credits and as part of university applications.

The cost to challenge the DELF exam is $90 for level A2, and $160 for both levels B1 & B2. Exam fees are payable directly to l’Alliance Française de Vancouver. Please download the application form for more info. DELF exam fees are non-refundable.

Please complete the application form and return it with payment to l’Alliance Française de Vancouver by email (info@alliancefrancaise.ca), fax (604-327-6606), online (http://www.alliancefrancaise.ca), or in person at l’Alliance Française de Vancouver (616 Cambie Street), on or before March 5th, 2014.

Students who register for the DELF will receive an email with specific information regarding their oral and written exam schedules and locations. Students are encouraged to consult with their French teacher, if they have specific questions about the DELF exam.
