Knowledge of French and English
Candidates in the skilled worker subclass (principal applicants and spouses) who wish to obtain points for their French knowledge (principal applicant: maximum of 16 points, including 14 points for oral and 2 points for written; spouse: maximum of 6 points for oral) must demonstrate this knowledge by enclosing with their immigration application the results of a French evaluation test issued by one of the two organizations recognized by the Ministère, specifically:
- The Test d’évaluation du français adapté pour le Quebec (TEFAQ) of the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris Île-de-France (CCIP);
- The Test de connaissance du français pour le Québec (TCFQ) of the Centre international d’études pédagogiques (CIEP);
- The Test d’évaluation du français (TEF) of the CCIP;
- The Test de connaissance du français (TCF) of the CIEP;
- The Diploma d’études en langue française (DELF) of the CIEP;
- The Diploma approbation de langue française (DALF) of the CIEP.
The first two tests (TEFAQ and TCF-Québec) only evaluate oral comprehension and production. Only candidates who wish to have points awarded for oral results (comprehension and production) may present these tests. Tests evaluating written comprehension and written production should be integrated with these two tests in 2014. In the meantime, candidates who wish to obtain points for the four categories of language knowledge (oral comprehension, oral production, written comprehension and written production) must register for the TFC or FEF. If these tests are not available, they can register for the DELF or DALF.
The current list of TEF, TEFAQ, TCF, TCFQ, DELF and DALF accredited centres can be consulted on the the Internet sites of the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris Île-de-France and the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (Centres d'examen DELF - DALF and Centres de passation du TCF pour le Québec).
To prove your language knowledge, you must provide the results of a standardized test, even if French or English is your mother tongue.
