  • TCF - Test de connaissance du français
    The TCF is a language level test in French as a general language designed by France Education International. It is open to everyone: you can take the TCF regardless of your age (from 16 years old) or your level of education. Once obtained, the TCF is valid for 2 years.

  • DELF & DALF
    DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (proficiency levels A1 through C2), taking into account all four linguistic competences: writing, reading, speaking and listening.
    Created by a team of psychometricians and experts in language testing, these tests are recognized on an international level and often used by foreign education ministries as a scale to evaluate their students’ level in French.
