The eTEF exams are electronic tests developed by the CCIP and recognised by the French Ministry of Education.

There is no pass or fail mark. Rather, each version of the test establishes your level in French.
A certificate with your results for each section is issued following the exam and is valid for two years.

Places for each session are limited, and  you will need to make sure we have a space available for you before sending us any type of payment.

Please contact us should the dates currently available in our schedule be unsuitable for you.

The eTEF evaluates your skills in French and can be used by employers, universities and business schools in France.
