Other such “official” exams include: the CIEF French exams DELF and DALF (French), the English IELTS (English), the Mandarin HSK exams, the WJEC Welsh exams, the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, the PLDA or CILS Italian exams, the CAPLE Portuguese exams, the TOPIC Korean exams or the DELE Spanish ones.
