TFI - Test international de français

The Test international de français (TFI™) evaluates the French level of non-francophones. This multiple choice test assesses a candidate's ability to understand, speak, read and write French as it is used in the international workplace. This test opens opportunities for programs of study or for employment.

The TFI test is a product of Educational Testing Service (ETS), developer of psychometric tests such as the SAT, TOEFL and TOEIC.

The TFI proves your ability in French as it:

  • is an indicator of your ability in French, and can be useful when applying for jobs and asking for a promotion at work.
  • proves your ability to follow a training course in French.
  • helps chart your progress in French

And consider this:

  • Some educational establishments require a TFI score for admission.
  • You can add your TFI score and description to your résumés.


Study Work
Most Cégeps and Francophone Universities require that non Francophone students obtain a TFI score for admission. You can demonstrate to employers your ability to use French in the workplace by including your TFI score and description on your resume.
