TEF: Test d'Evaluation de Français
The TEF (Test d’Evaluation de Français), designed and developed by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP), gives one the opportunity to test one’s comprehension and expression skills in general French.
Recognized all over the world, TEF might be useful as part of a recruitment procedure, higher studies in France or international mobility:
- For studies in France, one has to check with the University or Grande Ecole in which one plan to register in order to know which compulsory and/or optional papers to take.
- When applying for citizenship in Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) uses TEF as an assessment of proficiency in the French language to assign points for the language factor. Applicants may be requested to take both compulsory and optional tests: www.cic.gc.ca.
No prior diploma is required to sit for the TEF tests. One can sit several times for the TEF tests. A certificate, valid for one year as from the day of the test will be issued by Alliance française de Delhi, which is a TEF accredited centre.
