Diplôme d'études en langue française (DELF)

This qualification that students can earn comes from the Common European Framework for Languages. To be accepted to the French Immersion program at Ottawa U and other universities including those in Europe, students are required to have this certification. This year, all students who participated in the DELF testing were successful. The Grade 12 immersion students succeeded at the B2 level which is a level above the requirements to enter in the immersion program at a university. And the Grade 12 Core Academic students succeeded at the B1 level, which is the required entrance level to enter the same program.
