TCF

The Alliance Française de San Diego is a testing center for the TCF certification. 

The TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français) is a French Ministry of Education language certification operated by France Education International. It is intended for people 16 years of age or older, for whom French is not their native language, and who wish to have their level of French assessed.

You have different versions of the TCF: 

  • TCF Tout Public (TP): It is intended for anyone, of any nationality, who needs, for personal or professional reasons, to evaluate and validate their knowledge of French. As part of the application for prior admission (DAP) for entry into the first year of a university degree or for admission to a school of architecture, the candidate must take a TCF for the general public with a compulsory written expression test.

  • TCF Intégration, Résidence et Nationalité (IRN): It can be used to get: a residency card, naturalization, reinstatement, or declaration of nationality due to marriage with a French spouse.

  • TCF Québec (QC): It is intended for anyone 16 years of age or older, regardless of nationality or mother tongue, who needs to certify his or her level of French as part of a permanent immigration procedure to Quebec.

  • TCF Canada (CA): It is required for anyone 16 years of age or older, regardless of nationality or mother tongue, who needs to certify his or her level of French for immigration and/or citizenship purposes in Canada.
