French Test for French Citizenship

French flagWould you like to become a French citizen?

To become a French citizen, you are required to pass the language test: TCF-ANF (French Knowledge Test for Access to French Nationality). It is the French language test awarded by the French Ministry of Education. B1 level is required (to check your level, click here).

TCF-ANF is a new version of the TCF, and is specially designed for people who have to justify their level in French to access French nationality.

There are two compulsory tests:
– Oral comprehension (30 questions). Length of the test: 30 minutes
– French oral (6 questions). Length of the test: 15 minutes

At present, the “TCF for access to French nationality” certificate is only valid for an application for French nationality. It cannot be used to register, for example, at a French university or in an immigration application for Quebec. Please note, holders of DELF B1, DELF B2, DALF C1 and DALF C2 are exempted from the execution of this test. Holders of a certificate of completion of the TCF general speaking test, validating level B1 or higher in each of two tests of listening and speaking comprehension are also exempted from the execution of the test.

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 and the course content, please contact me.
