I wish I could help but I have no idea what TEF is.
Maybe @vcole , @maternal , @Blackbuddy , @salford1 may help

Well, there are some resources available online that could help you prepare. Some are free and some are paid but you can check the ones I found online if they can assist you;

TEF: Test d’évaluation de français
French exam needed for migration to Canada. You and Nogen are the Canadian French speakers I know of. The others in the Living in Canada thread do not seem to be speakers (I hope I am wrong, the more help the better).

Quite a lot of people need to take French in order to boost their points for migration. I am asking for tips on learning French and encouragement for people.

P.S. @mazuide also wrote that he is learning though he has not come online for a while.

Hello,
Please go to any Alliance française in your state. If you are in Lagos, go to their office at Sabo Yaba for further enquiries.

Joo2018,
I have been exposed to French since I was a baby and I grew up with it as my first language.
I dont think I am the right person to help those who are learning French as a second or foreign language given that I never been through that process.

In any case, as indicated by Nogen, Alliance française in your state should be a good start.

Hi etrange,

Great work starting this thread. I think when handled right, this thread will become a point of reference for people using French as a tool to get to Canada.

For me, I'm not taking TEF, but I'm working on improving my French and want to contribute to the thread.

I think the scope of the thread should be expended to include:

1. Posts encouraging people in their learning of French.
2. Posts sharing different language learning tools as we all learn in different ways.

Nigerians are quite good in languages. Most of us already speak at least two languages (English and our native tongue). French should be a step up. The problem we have is the way we were taught French in our primary and secondary schools. It made quite a lot of us (me inclusive) resistant to the idea of learning French.

But it is achievable. It shall end in praise!

Hi Bro,

Thanks for the suggestion. French learners are very much welcomed in our midst though I wouldn't want us to lose focus of the main purpose which is TEF.

You are correct about the way French is taught in our schools. I was only fortunate to have had great teachers. As for apps, I can remember using Duolingo for grammar and HelloTalk for virtual immersion.

Bonjour à tous! and thanks étrange for this initiative. I saw this post yesterday and sent a comment. It Never got posted and i was banned for 24 hrs probably because my post was in french. So i will try again, this time in english.

It is very possible to get a B2 in 6 months assuming you are doing thé Very intensive programme (VIP) at Alliance Français. Any other programme will take much longer. For example, I started studying in January with thé Regular evening programme and it took till May to conclu de with A1. From then, i took a private teacher and i had a very solid A2 in 5 weeks. My teacher says with a good A2 and lots of practice, one can excel in TEF.

As for study materials, i have thé TEF 250 activités and TEF Prepmyfuture app. Thé app is very helpful because it tells you thé strategy for tackling Every question type
and shows u your progress as u master thé concept. There is also vocabulary and grammer les sons and practise questions, TEF mock exams and alot of TEF patterned questions for your practice.

I would like to take thé exam in septembre at Alliance Phc but I'm still not satisfied with my fluency level. Maybe i would come over to Lagos for thé Octobre exam. Until then I look forward to improving my french by being part of this thread...

Below is a mooc course on coursera you can use to improve ur french, its free www.coursera.org/learn/etudier-en-france

Below is thé link to thé TEF prepmyfuture. Though you will have to pay for a one year access.
https://prepmyfuture.com/tef-english

Mon grand, I too was banned for 24hrs for typing in French. I wonder how people will improve their written written French if NL keeps banning us for typing in French.

Thanks for the resources shared. We will be glad to have you join us in Lag.

Great initiative @etrange. I am currently studying French although my initial plan was not to write TEF. From the look of things, i may need to do so to boost my CRS score. Am at B1 level. I haven't registered for TEF yet. Am still exploring before committing to letting go of 100k...I need to be sure am good enough to get a good score.

With B1 level, you can give it a try! Anything to improve your score is not waste no matter the outcome.

Go to lepointdufle and practice lots of listening, reading and writing exercices. For speaking, make friends with francophones or any Nigerian who speaks good French.

That's PH. Here in Lag, the population is higher thus the price difference. I think it's 30k each thus 120k.

How I wish the entire exam was about Lexique/Structure... cheesy

My own ban expired yesterday. Nairaland spam bot abeg allow us to write in french o...we're trying to learn the language. In my own case, the post was even in English undecided

Some study materials for the TEF can be downloaded here

They are mostly grammar and vocabulary books but I found the alter ego books especially helpful.
Most of the materials here are from DelPiero at canada visa

P.S. some materials are still uploading thanks to my superslow internet connection but hopefully before the end of the week.... embarassed
