TEf (TEST D'eVAluation DE FRANÇAIS)

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

The TEF is a French language exam created by the French Language Centre of the Chamber of Commerce & Industry Paris Ile de France. It evaluates your French language skills at 6 levels (A1 to C2) determined by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CECR).

It is intended for people who are not native French-speakers and who wish to assess and certify their skills in French because they want: to study in France, to get the French nationality or to immigrate to Canada/Quebec. However, everybody (above 16 ) who likes to prove their ability to communicate in French, for personal or professional reasons, can sit a TEF exam.

After you have passed the TEF, you'll receive a certificate of results stating your 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 TEF exams on computer (e-TEF): TEF, TEF pour la naturalisation, TEF Canada et TEF pour l'accès au Québec (TEFAQ).
