This seems to be the best thread for discussing the DELF. I will try to help with any questions. I'm trying to decide between the B1 and the B2. Having almost finished this book http://www.cle-inter.com/detail-9782090381245.html it lists B1 (you can see on the back cover of the book). However, when I took the sample exam for the B1, it was nearly perfect (comfort of my own home, but on a timer, etc.)
So, tonight I'm going to take a practice of the B2 oral (just one part of the exam) and see how well I do and how much I have to prepare.
I am using the materials here. (mp3 and pdfs)
The PDF links are in blue at the left (i.e. DELF B2) has two oral parts. The B2 exam is a little longer than the B1 giving you more time for the reading and writing portions. You can compare the two tests yourself and see where you are after getting through Rocket French level 1.
I can post more about how the process goes, what it costs, how to register and all of that as I figure it out. For now, take advantage of the materials and feel free to post anything you think would be helpful. I don't really have a good reason to take these exams, so I lack a little motivation, but I'll give it a try. Maybe it will open up an opportunity somewhere that I hadn't imagined. Honestly I should be programming a Raspberry Pi and learning how to write distributed software rather than learning French, but a little break is a good idea also, eh? You can help keep me motivated by posting questions to this thread.
