Are you interested in moving to Canada, Quebec, or France? You will get benefits by taking French tests like TCF, TEFAQ, TCFQ, TEF Canada, and TEF Exam.
What are the DELF and TEF?
The DELF is an official qualification awarded by the French Ministry of Education to test the French-language skills of candidates whose mother tongue is not French. It certifies the candidate’s level of French following the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): from A1 (beginner) to C2 (advanced).
TEF is the abbreviation of Test d’Evaluation de Francais was started by the Paris Île -de-France CCI in 1998. The French Ministry of National Education was officially recognized in 2012. This exam seeks to test the French proficiency in people looking to travel or immigrate to France as a French Citizen in France or Canada. This is one of the recognized proficiency exams in Canada and France.
Now let us see the difference between delf and TEF exams
DELF Vs. TEF
The main difference between DELF and TEF exams is that the latter is one single test where your score will determine the number of points awarded for French proficiency. For the DELF exams in India, you can choose a level A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 as per your proficiency level, and if you pass the exam, you are awarded the points and also certified with the diploma for that level.
The TCF for Quebec certificate is only valid for your immigration application in Quebec (Canada). It is the only French examination accepted for the Quebec Federal Program and this certification cannot be used for admission to a French university or any University in French-speaking nations.
Unlike the TCF, the validity of the DELF never expires. Since TEF results are valid for two years from the date, you took the test, thus, it is not very advantageous for the careers involving French and job prospects outside France and Canada.
These diplomas are valid for life. DELF certificates are developed by the Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques (CIEP) and reflect the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
