Starting October 1st, 2022, the
exams will be held
in digital format at the Alliance Française de San
On D-Day, a tutorial will explain the process.
The TCF Canada consists of four mandatory parts. It evaluates general French language proficiency in listening comprehension, reading
comprehension, speaking and writing.
- 39 multiple choice questions for listening comprehension - 35 minutes;
- 39 multiple choice questions for the reading comprehension with only one correct answer possible - 60 minutes;
3 speaking tasks, organized according to a progressively increasing level of difficulty - 30 minutes (12 minutes effective interaction);
- 3 writing tasks, also with a progressively increasing level of difficulty - 60 minutes.
The levels correspond to the benchmarks specified by the European Framework for Language Learning, Teaching and Evaluation as well as the
Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB).
You need to take all 4 exams.
The exam is organized on 1 Half day or 1 full day depending on the number of candidates, as the speaking part is individual. It is
not possible to change the time of your exam. There will probably be some waiting time between some of your examination parts.
Please respect the schedule you receive as we are on a tight schedule and plan to arrive onsite 15 minutes before your first exam
