IFAK Kimihurura Students pass DELF Test in Style
Nineteen students from IFAK Kimihurura have successfully passed the DELF test (Diplôme d’études en langue française) in style. DELF is an official qualification awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language. These certificates are valid for life.
The DELF, recognized worldwide, is a prestigious certification awarded by the French Ministry of Education, attesting to one’s proficiency in the French language.
Reverend Father Jean Bosco Ntirenganya, the Headmaster of IFAK Kimihurura, explained that the students who received their certificates on Friday, December 1, 2023, had taken the DELF test last year in collaboration with the French Embassy in Kigali.
Rev. Father Ntirenganya noted that this partnership between IFAK Kimihurura and the French Embassy is a significant opportunity for students who wish to continue their studies abroad, especially in French and Canadian Universities.
“It opens doors and serves as a bridge to different universities. With this certificate, you can apply to study at many universities, including those in France and Canada. This document is valuable and required. We urge students to take such tests,” Father Ntirenganya said.
Rev. Father Ntirenganya expressed the desire to collaborate with institutions so that students at IFAK Kimihurura can also pass English proficiency tests like IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, among others.
“We want to provide our students with this opportunity. Having knowledge and a certificate that proves your proficiency is invaluable. Keep developing your knowledge. I encourage others to seize this opportunity for tomorrow.”
The IFAK students showcased their proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking French. It was a test not only of linguistic aptitude but also of resilience and tenacity.
All 19 students had not only passed but had excelled in their respective examinations, earning the prestigious DELF certificates.
The students who passed this test are very excited to step forward towards a bright future. Abitonda Alain Germain, who studies in senior two, believed that this certificate would help him when he applies to study abroad.
“I am very glad and happy to pass this test. It will help me in my future studies. I advise other students to take this test because it will be useful, and wherever you go or whatever you do, you will need languages, and these certificates are the ones to show that you really know a language,” Abitonda said.
Abitonda passed the DELF test with a grade of A2, and he expects to pass the test at higher levels like B2 and B1 next time.
These DELF certificates were not just pieces of paper; they were passports to a world where linguistic proficiency opened doors to international opportunities, cross-cultural exchanges, and a deeper understanding of the global community.
