FRENCH FOR CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP

Canadian FlagWould you like to study French to apply for Canadian citizenship?

Canada has two official languages: English and French. If you’re 18 to 54 years of age on the day you sign your application, you must show that you can speak and listen at a specific level in one of these languages. To become a citizen, you need to meet the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) Level 4 or higher/ or B1 or higher of the  Common European Framework for Languages. I can help you to get ready for your interview and also prepare you for one of the various certificates, diplomas or tests accepted by the Canadian authorities:

The ways they measure your language skills in French include:

  • reviewing the proof you send with your application
  • noting how well you communicate when you talk to a citizenship official anytime during the process
  • assessing your language level during a hearing with a citizenship official, if necessary

But again, please double check as the law and requirements can change quickly. I will do my best to help you and provide you with accurate information but please bear in mind I am not a legal expert. However, I am fully qualified to help you with French and make sure you are ready for your interview and/ or test. To discuss your needs or the course content, please contact me.
