The CCI Paris Île-de-France is pleased to announce our new partnership with The French Institute Alliance Française in New York, USA, who from now on will propose the Test d’Évaluation en Français (TEF) and Diplomas in French for Professions.
Located in the heart of New York City, FIAF is the United States’ leading French language and cultural center, with a mission to realize innovative programs to explore the evolving diversity and richness of French cultures.
We seek to generate new ideas and promote cross-cultural dialogue through partnerships and new platforms of expression.
Founded at the turn of 20th century as two separate and later merged institutes promoting French Arts and teaching French language, FIAF, an American private non-profit organization and home to the largest private French library in the US, has for nearly 120 years been the destination for starting, continuing, and perfecting French language skills through an unparalleled range of cultural events including live performances, film screenings, panel discussions, wine tastings, and gallery exhibitions for Americans of all ages and backgrounds.
FIAF also operates as a French testing center for a wide range of French exams, and has partnered with CCI Paris Ile-de-France in this effort since 2005. In 2019, in addition to continuing to offer the ever popular TEF (Test d’Évaluation de Français) for university students, for those applying for French and Canadian nationality and those who apply for Canadian and Quebec immigration, FIAF has renewed its partnership with CCI Paris Ile-de-France’s Le français des affaires and offers the Diplôme de français professionnel, as it has in the past, in response to recent renewed interest from various quarters, including the New York University, and to complement FIAF’s current class offering, “Français des affaires”.
In the United States, and especially in New York City, offering classes and exams in Business French serves a two-fold goal: First, FIAF’s students gain crucial skills for profitable employment in an international business context. Second, international French organizations gain valuable American employees with a deeper understanding of France, of the French language, and of French business. Americans call that “win-win”! (Or a win-win situation).
