TEFaQ (Québec)

The TEFaQ is a specific version of the TEF which has been elaborated on the request of the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities of Québec (MICC) to assess French language competency in those wishing to emigrate to Québec.

En partenariat avec le CNED, l’Alliance Française de Paris gère une formation professionnelle à distance s’adressant à des professeurs ou futurs professeurs désireux d’enseigner le français langue étrangère. Cette formation est accessible uniquement par voie d’un test obligatoire et est validée par l’un des examens finaux (ancienne ou nouvelle formule) afin d’obtenir le DAEFLE.

DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française) and DALF (Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française) are official certifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education designed to assess the level of fluency in French language. These certificates are valid for life.

These diplomas provide the candidate with a quality French-level certification, useful to carry out specific personal, academic or professional projects.
