The TCF is an examination in French that allows all foreigners to assess their level in French. The TCF exam is required to apply for French nationality, for a residence permit in France, and to apply for academic studies in France. The TCF will help you integrate in France if you intend to work or have a job in France.

The TCF exam is a snapshot of your level of French at the time you take the exam. It officially validates your level of French.


The choice of test depends on your project or objective. Several sessions are organized throughout the year and there are different versions of the TCF available:

The test can be done on computer or on paper.

TCF All Audiences (TP)
