Developed on behalf of the Ministry of National Education by the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP), the TCF or Test de connaissance du français is intended for any non-French-speaking person who wishes to assess and validate their knowledge and skills in French.
This test determines your level of French for each test you take: oral comprehension, oral expression, written comprehension, written expression, and/or understanding of the structures of the language. It also determines your overall level of French. All TCF events are organized by progressive difficulty level. The results obtained in the test lead to a level certificate (valid for 2 years).
