TOEIC® and TFI™ Authorised Exam Centre
A new session is organised on demand when a minimum of 5 candidates have registered!
The TFI is now correlated to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
The TFI is a French language proficiency test for people working or seeking to work in a French-speaking environment and for whom French is a foreign language.
What are the advantages of the TFI?
French is spoken daily by more than 170 million people around the world and is widely used in international and professional environments. A student willing to study or work in a francophone country or in a multilingual international environment can testify their French language proficiency level thanks to the test results, acknowledged worldwide as valid and reliable.
Who uses this test?
- Managers and human resource departments for recruitment.
- Companies using the test to define the language levels required for each position.
- Universities and higher education institutions to certify French language proficiency; the results are also used as admission criteria or to validate a diploma.
- Language schools to create homogenous level groups and to certify a student’s progress at the end of a programme.
- Students and employees choose to take the test to assess their proficiency level in an academic or professional environment.
How is it marked?
The results depend on the number of correct answers. All the correct answers of each section are converted into a single grade according to a predefined grading system.
Each candidate receives three test scores: one for the “oral comprehension” phase, another one for the “written comprehension" section, and a final global score, which is the sum of both. For these two examinations, the minimum score is 5 points and the maximum score is 495 points. Consequently, the final score ranges from 10 to 990 points. The assessment system converting scores on a common scale guarantees that two similar results correspond to an equivalent level in French.
