DFP EXAM

What is DFP?

The Professional French Diploma (Diplôme de Français Professionnel – DFP) is a language evaluation designed to certify your ability to use efficiently the French language for professional purposes.

The DFP is awarded by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and
Industry, at the service of 670,000 companies, leader and pioneer in this market for more than 60 years. This exam is internationally recognized.

Professional French Diplomas have a lifetime validity. Registration and exams are organized by the Alliance Française de Lagos.

There are five independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the five levels of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) : A1, A2, B1, B2, C1.

The 5 diplomas that make up DFP are completely independent. This means that candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level.
