Preparation for the TEF Naturalization at ALC Montreal

The TEF can be taken either online or on paper, in specific certified centres. No previous diploma is required in order to take the exam. The candidate must be over 16 years of age.

The goal of the TEF is to evaluate the candidate’s competency in French based on a 7-level scale ranging from level 0+ (elementary proficiency) to level 6 (complete mastery).

This scale corresponds to the:

  • 6 competency levels – from A1 to C2 – in the European Council’s Common European Framework for Reference (CEFR)
  • 12 competency levels in the Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB)
