Would 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:
Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF)– at least B1 level or higher
Diplôme approfondi de langue française (DALF) – C1 or C2 level
Test de connaissance du français (TCF)– B1 level or higher
Test de connaissance du français pour le Québec (TCFQ)- Level 4 of CLB
Test d’Évaluation du Français adapté au Québec (TEFAQ)– Level 4 of CLB
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.
