The DELF (Diplômes d’Etudes en Langue Française) is an official certificate, issued by the French ministry of education, to certify French skills of foreign candidates. It covers four levels, from A1 to B2, defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages. St. John’s is the only international school in the Brussels area to offer the DELF exam and served as an examination center and hosted the exam session for students in grade 9 and grade 10, at different levels: A2 (elementary), B1 (intermediate) and B2 (upper intermediate).
The success rate this year was remarkable: 94% overall with 35 students taking part. Students taking the A2 and B1 exam achieved an average score of 78% and 80% respectively, with 94.5% and 92.5% as high scores. For B2 (the level required to study at a French university), students achieved an average score of 65% with a high score of 80%. Congratulations to all students who took the DELF exam and to their teachers!
