For TCF CBT Expression Ecrite no need to fear AZERTY it's a QWERTY and you can reconfigure if you prefer...at least in Togo...see below

I believe TCF PH is paper based.

Bonsoir a tous et a toutes,

On this TEF vs TCF matter, make me sef add my own 2 million Canadian Dollars on top.

TeF - They repeat questions A LOT, so if you are lucky to encounter a repeated question, then you are good. My CO was completely new as I had neever heard the questions before.

My Submission

If you have written TEF more than once, it is difficult to "change" to TCF because of the major reasons I gave, but if you have never written any of the exams, I would advice you to go for the TCF. Once you have learnt the language enough to write the exams, focus on the understanding the CO pattern, once you do, you are good to go.

All the best a tous et a toutes, for if there is one major thing we will all gain apart from a minimum of 42 points, is the ability to speak a second foreign language, and it is something I can't trade away.


Thanks sis! kiss

......they cannot take that 2nd language from us mehn!!!!!!

Hi @Mariah203,

What do you mean by "get the test on paper for your practice"?

Thanks for your response


I mean that you should print out the test. I know most of the resources available are computer based but u can get some that u can print out on paper to work with while you listen to the audio... If you write in phc, your exam is going to be on paper and this will help...

Yes O! I don't have a choice but to rewrite.

As for the speaking, the trick is to appropriately use a French Idiomatic Expression. Even if you are an A2 level speaker, you'd get a C1. This was a tip I got at Alliance Française.

Thank you for this

I'll really have to learn all these tips man.

Since you have written the test before, I would like to ask how the listening usyalky is

Like what is the quality of the audio?
Is it tough?
Or the audio is simple to understand

In the context of audio quality, it was clear.

For the most part, it is a passable exam, just like IELTS.

However, the toughness of the Listening questions, is a function of your own understanding of the language.

All the best Bro!

Merciii @Laune @Scard @Kennyyo

There has to be some way to make AF Lagos start taking TCF oo...there was a poll they were doing one time but perhaps they didn't get enough traffic for TCF..

A whole Lagos! I'll contact them again this week and provide updates.
Re: All TEF Candidates For Canada Immigration, Let's Meet Here! by Kennyyo: 12:29pm On Aug 25
They said to start in September/October but we're still waiting for approval from CIEP as at the last time enquired. I'll ask for an update this weekend or even chat up the guy who handles the TEF prep classes.

Update: "No. We are no more organising it.
That is what my director told me last week"
That's from the guy. So those who want to do TCF might have to look elsewhere.

I am so grateful for this thread.

I had the following when I took the test in Paris in 2017.

Expression ecrite B2
Expressio orale C1
Comprehension ecrite B2
Grammaire B2
Comprehension orale B2

Would have to search to find my results for the raw scores.


This time I am really determined to do well and my target is to be prepared by December at the very latest.

I have a set of Becscherelle books I am reading for now but will read loads of literature and listen listen listen.

Please of anyone has questions, etc. I will take time and scroll from page 1 to the end of this thread.

Thanks once again for opening this thread.

Hello house, how's everyone doing? It's been awhile and how's the French journey going? Mine has been very tedious o especially writing and listening but I keep at it. So just saw today's draw was 470 & it put the fear of God in me but we go pass by God's grace. Please i need a study buddy/buddies that plan to write the exams by September/October? Cos I noticed i'm somewhat relaxed even with my tutor. I live in Lagos by the way even better if you stay around the egbeda axis. However, ikeja is an option also. Please anyone interested should respond...let's say i'm on A2/B1 sha

Happy to share my experience and we can learn together. Plan to write in December at the very latest.

3months is impossible no matter how intensive the classes may be. You need at least 8months to 1year.

But learning from scratch for 3months, je dirai non. For these exams, you must know French.

If you go to France and live with a french family, may be.

It's a tall order from scratch IF your target is 42+ points.

However, you might be able to get some points on the side (B2 speaking is within reach based on how the exam is structured). (3 - 10+ points)

Anything is possible, it's just that the effort required is quite intense.

Hello guys, I would be started classes on Monday at AF. I'm so scared and hope this would favour me. I'm dedicating 8 months to a year to learning French and hopefully get through, I have absolutely no idea. I was going to prepare for TEF but from what I just read I would focus on TCF. Please I'm open to advise. Please forgive me because I seem to be everywhere. I'm just anxious and looking for reassurance.
