Exam Center

The Alliance Française de Seattle is a major French language exam center in the Pacific Northwest. We offer tests and exams based on the same levels as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.

Certification Tests: TEF, TCF

The tests TEF and TCF are reliable measurements for determining proficiency and are only valid for a limited period of time.

Created and accredited by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Test d’Evaluation de Français (TEF) is an international benchmark test that measures your level of knowledge and skills in French.  The TEF provides confirmation of one’s level of competency in French in any professional, academic or mobility-related context.

Designed by the CIEP (Centre international d’études pédagogiques) and accredited by the French Ministry of Education, the Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF) is a French language proficiency test for non-native speakers of French who wish to evaluate and have their level of proficiency certified for professional, academic, or personal reasons.


The Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF) and Diplôme approfondi en langue française (DALF) are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify non-French candidates’ proficiency in French.

For the junior version–secondary-level students (13+), please refer to DELF Junior. For children ages 8-12, please refer to the DELF Prim.

The Alliance Française de Seattle is also an official exam center for the Diplôme d’aptitude à l’enseignement de Français langue étrangère (DAEFLE), the teacher training for French as a foreign language.
