Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF)

The Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF), designed by the France Education International and accredited by the French Ministry of Education, is a French language proficiency test for non-native speakers of French who wish to evaluate and have their level of proficiency certified for professional, academic or personal reasons.

In general, the TCF grades and ranks candidates at one of the six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2) on a scale defined by the Council of Europe (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). TCF grade results are reliable measurements for determining proficiency.

The Alliance française de Pasadena offers :

  • TCF for the general public
  • TCF for Quebec/ TCF for Canada /ANF  (Accès à la Nationalité Française)
