Specific preparations for these exams are offered by Alliance Française de Nairobi..

DELF exams (Diplôme d’Etude de la Langue Française) cannot be taken online.  For now, the March, May and June exam sessions have been postponed. An updated calendar will be shared as soon as possible once it has been finalized in association with the French Ministry of Education.

However, whilst our premises still remain closed to the general public, we are making arrangements for candidates to sit for either the TCF, the TEF, or the DFP exams (Diplôme de Français Professionel), awarded by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Paris. On passing a level, your efforts will be rewarded with an internationally recognized diploma that is valid for life! 

As the sessions for the TCF, TEF and DFP exams are organized upon request (choose the exam date that is most convenient for you, and register at least 2 weeks in advance), we can arrange a schedule that will comply  with the public health security measures in these times. With a maximum of three to four candidates at a time in our computer room, we will be able to ensure a social distancing between candidates and staff at all times.

As the main part of these exams is completed online through our secured IT system, the candidates and one invigilator only will be allowed to access the room.  The room and the equipment will be disinfected before and after each use. The individual oral section will take place in a classroom, with only one candidate and one accredited examiner at a time. The classroom and furniture will also be disinfected.

You may want to revise in preparation. This is possible for the DFP exams with the Français3.0 application (download on your smartphone) and the guides available on The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Paris’s website.


DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française, Tout Public, Junior & Prim) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language.
