Congratulations! I am always happy whenever I see news of someone here passing TEF. It also boosts my morale.

A couple questions, please. Do you live in Lagos, and if yes, where did you take your French classes?

Congratulations!! How many days did your result take? I heard the result of the new TEF is supposed to be faster but i read some persons waiting for over a month before getting their result
thanks The result came out after about 3 weeks, it depends on the session, it could take up to six weeks

Congrats. This is an inspiring result. And for first time (I presume), na you be the MVP. We pray for all of us yet to take our TEF that it favours us too.
Can you share your exam experience and questions.

Also, pls your classes at IEF, was it online or physical classes? I am considering signing up for their online because of traffic and work stress. Af physical classes isn't working for me again . I dont even have time to read and revise which is counter productive.

Yes, it was, many thanks to elders of this thread

It was physical class

In my opinion, physical class is 50% tutor, 50 % personal efforts while online class is 25% tutor, 75 % personal efforts.

My "exam experience" was similar to the one shared by Framaro and asusfanatics.

My questions
CE
Normandie
Magazine Elle
7 et 97
Estival
Facilite
Apart from the long texts, other questions were totally new.

CO 047 (only OGs would understand)

EE
dans un monde moderne. Le magasin ne devrait jamais fermer

A man that just retired was sharing money and a passerby called the police...

Here is my timeline, it isn't ideal because of Covid

Joined IEF November last year till mid march because of covid angry. I moved to self study, my speaking wasn't good so I started searching for people to speak with got a few from different countries. Also paid a friend/tutor just to speak with her. Read schaum's grammar, French verb drills, TEF 250 ( all these books are available on this thread) also scanned through Alter ego B1, B2 and C1.

My friends and I started speaking almost everyday around April/May, ( my secret to speaking smiley ). I also got another tutor to correct my writing and speaking. Returned to IEF in June for B2 but left after like 3 days, I felt I don't really need it, went back for TEF class in July. Did several speaking sessions with Mamaroon and monsieur Fabguen, was certified okay and we eventually moved to writing, they gave a lot of advise and tips which really helped (Thank you very much for your selfless service, I so much appreciate). Left IEF again in July as I felt I really needed to focus on my writing, traffic wasn't also helping, so I continued with my previous tutor, she corrected my speaking and writing.
Ayande do send recent EE questions which I usually answer and she correct (Thank you very much, words can't express how grateful I am to you guys )

Wrote the exam in September, result came out after about 20 days.

Just to add
I focused more on writing and speaking because the pass rate is low especially writing, it's the French that you know that would help(and grace), no shortcut unlike the other two.

Read the long text for reading and listening more than 6 times. For longtext, there are different editions, same questions but different answers, I used the long text on TEF academie

The Ogas of this thread have already given a lot of tips, you can click on their moniker to read them.

TEF gave me 48 points, Wes and Unilorin has been passing me to each other but not really bothered since my CRS score is now 491

Bonjour à tous !

Je m'appelle étrange.

Félicitations à tous ceux qui ont réussi à surmonter les défis de TEF. Comme je le dis toujours, le français ne facilite pas seulement votre immigration, il vous prépare également à la vie bilingue au Canada. Je vous souhaite donc tout le meilleur dans votre quête de PPR.

Pour ceux qui se battent encore avec l'examen, je dirais bon courage ! Tenez le coup et lorsque vous commencez à vous fatiguer, souvenez-vous de l'objectif final et rajeunissez-vous. Ça en vaut la peine.

Re: All TEF Candidates For Canada Immigration, Let's Meet Here! by Brownie1003: 12:26am On Oct 20
Pls how do you know they are good in oral since you never went there? How many of their students have you met that speaks well? I am a product of AF and attending classes doesn't determine your ability to speak or understand the language, but your additional effort biko.

Learning french is not just by the institute, it requires your PERSONAL effort. If you like go to IEF, same noni.
My 5 cents. Peace!!

I know right. I wish too, but work, time and stress won't permit. I believe I have a good foundation already from AF regardless of how it goes.
Re: All TEF Candidates For Canada Immigration, Let's Meet Here! by ThatEdoFemme: 4:17pm On Oct 20
i understand oo. not easy. look for a personal online tutor whose first language is french and who knows and has passed the the exam. to avoid some dangerous mistakes alot of us made. To say what many people like me who didnt make their 1st, 2nd or more attempt are too polite to say on this thread, most french teachers who teach us french in Nigeria to pass TEF eh, if they write the exams themselves eh, they wont pass. let no one deceive you o. na u get to do the work either self study, or in finding the right teacher.

Re: All TEF Candidates For Canada Immigration, Let's Meet Here! by Brownie1003: 2:18am On Oct 21
Madam, stop assuming you know me because you don't. I am not here to argue but to tell you personal effort matters and not just by the center. Yes AF teaches, but they will not PUSH you to speak or intensify in your reading after classes. A lot of people finish from AF and can't speak. And it's not their fault because not everyone builds the confidence to speak. I currently have 3 friends who finished from AF(B2), and doing immersion program in a french country to improve their speaking. I'm only countering your point when you said AF is good in Oral, have you heard their students speak?
