The TEF consists of 3 compulsory sections and 2 optional sections:

* we do not take responsibility for and cannot advice on the right sections of the test to take as it depends on every individual situation. Please make sure you check which sections you need.

 


Test d’Evaluation de Français adapté au Québec (TEFaQ)

TEFaQ, which is an adaptation of the regular TEF, is required by the Ministry of Immigration Québec for a visa application. A certificate of results is issued and valid for two years.
The test is NOT suitable for candidates with only a basic knowledge of the language and candidates should not register without having attained an upper intermediate level of French. Candidates now need to have at least a B2 level. Both the listening & speaking sections are compulsory for the TEFaQ.

Candidates for TEFaQ can select which part of the test they want to sign for:

A good knowledge of the language is now necessary as the level required has been increased. Level B2 of the Common European Framework for Languages has become the minimum threshold from which points are attributed for knowledge of oral and written French (two points can be attributed for knowledge of writing/reading).
