Test for Access to Quebec

The Test for Evaluating French for Access to Quebec (TEFAQ) is a test of general French which aims to measure the candidate’s level of knowledge and ability in French.

It is the version of the TEF recognised by the Quebec Ministry for Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion (MIDI) and is essential for making an official immigration application.

What is tested?

The TEFAQ consists of four modular sections:
· Oral comprehension: 40 minutes – 60 questions
· Oral expression: 15 minutes – 2 topics
· Written comprehension: 60 minutes – 50 questions
· Written expression: 60 minutes – 2 topics

The results will be sent to you electronically.
