What is TCF TP?

The Test de Connaissance du Français – Tout Public (TCF-TP) is an exam that assesses the French language abilities of a non-native speaker. The TCF is used for French language immigration and citizenship requirements and for employment purposes.

Level of Proficiency

The TCF levels relate to those of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). These levels range from A1 to C2, in increasing order of difficulty (and consequently, of the proficiency of a student at a given level).


This exam is important when applying for visas to or citizenships in Francophone nations. A person seeking employment or an opportunity for higher education in such countries will also find a TCF certification extremely useful, if not indispensable. The latter case applies to a prospective student. The TCF is required by postsecondary educational institutes for students wishing to apply for the final year in undergraduate or post-graduate programmes.
