The Test de connaissance du français (TCF), designed by the Centre International d’Études Pédagogiques (CIEP) and accredited by the French Ministry of Education, is a French language proficiency test for non-native speakers who need their level of proficiency certified. The TCF tout public is often used for professional, academic, and personal reasons. The TCF also has adaptations for immigration purposes. The Alliance Française offers the TCF Québec examination for the Quebec immigration process. For French Nationality, we offer the TCF-ANF (TCF pour accès à la nationalité française).
