Prepare for your TCF exam with the Alliance Française d'Amsterdam

Valid your knowledge of French language with an official and international diploma

The TCF is a French language test offered by the French Ministry of Education. It evaluates your French language skills at 6 levels (from A1 to C2) determined by the common European framework of reference for languages (CEFR).

It is intended for people who are not native French-speakers and who wish to assess and certify their skills in French, for personal or professional reasons.

After you have passed the TCF, all candidates receive a certificate of results stating their level for the different language capacities.

This certificate is internationally recognised and valid for two years.

At the Alliance Française d'Amsterdam you can take the following TCF exams on computer: TCF Tout Public, TCF pour le Québec and TCF  Intégration,Résidence & Nationalité. Results will be available within two weeks and sent to you by email.
