The Summer sessions are sold out. New sessions will be added starting in September. Please sign
up to our exam
center mailing list to become informed as soon as we open new sessions.
Our exam center is open under strict conditions. A limited number of sessions for TEF are organized with one (1) candidate at a time. The TEF policies are updated to reflect the COVID-19 safety measures for both candidates and AFSeattle personnel.
Tests and exams take place the Alliance Française de Seattle.
In an effort to limit the spread of the virus, AFSeattle is only accepting candidates who are residents of the states of Washington and Oregon (candidates will be asked for a proof of residency in their registration request). For residents of other regions in the USA: please check with the local Alliances Françaises, who are also offering TEF or TCF sessions.
We know that the tests are essential for your life projects, and we are doing our best to serve you. However, we cannot accommodate special requests: the TEF will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis. TEF results are sent by e-mail, by the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry, approximately 2-4 weeks after you take your test.
All tests are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages' levels—A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2—and only valid for a limited period of time.
Should you have questions about the test content, please click on the link TEST DETAILS on the previous page.
To register, please find the test of your choice below and follow the registration procedure.
Please note that there is no more TCF DAP (check the new requirements here).
