If you’re unable to evaluate your proficiency in French, you will be able to have a test. Then according to your score, your teacher is able to prepare a program based on your weak points. You can also decide to work on a specific skill : listening comprehension and oral expression, or reading comprehension and written expression.


The TCF is a standardized test of general French language, designed and graded by the CIEP (a key national public institution for the Ministries of Education and Higher Education). This exam is intended for non-native French speakers who want to assess their level of proficiency in French for professional, personal or academic reasons. Following the successful completion of the test, the CIEP issues a certificate (valid for 2 years) certifying the candidate’s current level in French.
