The TFI™ test is used by language learners of all levels, regardless of background, as a fair and objective measure of French proficiency.
The test examines Listening and Reading comprehension skills and uses common everyday vocabulary, phrases and key expressions that reflect real-world tasks. Test takers do not need to have special knowledge beyond that of a person who uses written and oral French in everyday activities.
