Alliance Française de Lagos is holding several tests to assess your level of French for canadian immigration procedures :

· TEF CANADA (Test d’Évaluation de Français)

· TEFAQ (Test d’Évaluation de Français pour l’Accès au Québec)


The TEF Canada and TEFAQ are directed to candidates who want to assess their level of proficency in French for immigration applications to Canada, or Québec, or for Canadian citizenship application. It is recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities (MICC) in Québec as an official proof of language proficiency. It is an assessment and proof of your French language proficiency at the time you take the test, and it is valid for two years.


Anyone can sit for TEF Canada or TEFAQ to get a proof of language proficiency in French. You can take the test at Alliance Française de Lagos, whether you took French classes at Alliance or not.


It is compulsory to strictly follow the registration process & deadlines as well as the rules and regulations of Alliance Française de Lagos. The test is computer-based. During the test, 4 modules will evaluate your level of proficiency in oral and written skills:

Listening: 40 min – 60 questions
Reading: 60 min – 50 questions
Speaking: 15min – 2 subjects to be covered
Writing: 60 min – 2 mandatory topics to be covered

The level of proficiency is assessed on a 7 level scale : from 0 for most basic skills to 6 for complete fluency. These levels corresponds to the A1 to C2 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) which are also the levels in use for french classes at Alliance Française de Lagos. It’s also equivalent to the 12 levels of the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). The higher your level in French is at the time you take the test, the higher you’ll score at TEF and TEFAQ.


The TEF Canada or TEFAQ is not a short-term project. It requires time to get prepared in order to obtain a sufficient score for your immigration application project.

There is no specific TEF preparatory class for very beginners who want to take the TEF on short-term. Our online preparatory classes with PrepMyFuture are directed to candidates who already have an intermediate level of proficiency in French and already registered for the test : it focuses on the technical aspects of the TEF or TEFAQ and helps to practise the different types of exercises to be done during the test.

If you need to get ready for the TEF Canada or TEFAQ, Alliance Française de Lagos offers French classes all along the year. You can check our general course programme to find a class that matches your schedule.

We recommend an intermediate / upper intermediate level in French (B1 / B2) to take the TEF or TEFAQ and obtain satisfactory results: Alliance Française de Lagos can not be held accountable if a candidate does not reach her or his targeted level / score.
