The TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français) is an official language test for anyone who wishes, for personal, professional or academic reasons, to evaluate and validate their French skills in a simple and reliable manner.
The results obtained give rise to a certificate of level, valid for 2 years. This certificate allows you to situate your level of French (from A1 to C2) on the scale of competences defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
