For French 12 students interested in the DELF exam:

The exam will happen between April 8 – 11. You have until March 6th to register. If you are interested in participating, I suggest that you register asap. I don’t know if there is a cap on the the number of students who can participate.

When you register, you must indicate which level you wish to be assessed at. It looks like the turn-around time for registration is too short for Mme Tang to come and talk with you & help to determine the appropriate level for you.

I suggest that you you look at the following link for an explanation of what the exam entails at each level. For your reference, many French Immersion students assess at the B1 or B2 level. C levels are for university level language:



You can look at some samples from the A2 level at the link below:


Or the B1 level at this link:



The link to register for the exam is here:
