TCF Québec

Test de Connaissance du Français pour Québec


What is the TCF Québec?


The TCF for Québec is a specific version of the Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF) which has been elaborated by the France Education International based on the request of the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities of Québec (MICC) to assess French language competency in those wishing to emigrate to Québec.

The TCF for Québec is composed of listening comprehension, oral expression and (as of 2013) optional reading comprehension and written expression modules (worth a maximum of 2 of 16 possible points corresponding to competency levels—see table below).

The six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2) on a scale are defined by the Council of Europe (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

The candidate must achieve a minimum overall evaluated level of B2.

Points for Evaluated Level:

Module: Listening comprehension (29 questions – 25 mins)
A1 = 0 | A2 = 0 | B1 = 0 | B2 = 5 | C1 = 6 | C2 = 7

Module: Oral expression (3 tasks – 12 mins with evaluator)
A1 = 0 | A2 = 0 | B1 = 0 | B2 = 5 | C1 = 6 | C2 = 7

Module: Reading comprehensio (29 questions – 45 mins)
A1 = 0 | A2 = 0 | B1 = 0 | B2 = 1 | C1 = 1 | C2 = 1

Module: Written expression (3 tasks – 1 hr)
A1 = 0 | A2 = 0 | B1 = 0 | B2 = 1 | C1 = 1 | C2 = 1

Total Points
A1 = 0 | A2 = 0 | B1 = 0 | B2 = 12 | C1 = 14 | C2 = 16

Your TCF for Québec certificate is only valid for your emigration application. You cannot use it for example for admission to a French university or for other purposes.
