The Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF) is the French test approved by the French Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research :
- The TCF assesses a person’s level of French for general purposes. It is intended for individuals who are not native French speakers and who, for professional, personal or academic reasons, wish to have their French skills assessed and certified simply, reliably and quickly.
- The TCF is a standard graded test designed by the Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques (CIEP), a language tester and member of the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE), based on an extremely rigorous method that makes it a valid means of assessing language skills.
- All candidates receive a certificate of results that grades them at one of six levels (from A1 to C2) on the competency scale defined by the Council of Europe (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). This means that it is not possible to fail the TCF.
- Since December 2002, the TCF has been certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 : 2000 standard.
- An electronic version of the TCF that candidates can use to take the test on a computer in only 48 hours.
