DELF preparation is a great way to get an idea of your French level

Candidates wishing to work for the Federal Government of Canada are often asked to take a Second Language Evaluation. This evaluation is very similar to the DELF (Diplôme d’Etude de la Langue Française). This test was made to validate their level in the French language. The test is divided into four (4) levels, from beginner to advanced: A1, A2, B1 and B2.
