Really great place to study french! Aurelie was the best teacher and guided us throughout the program and got us to a pretty high level in a matter of months. I definitely recommend this place!

The team has been really great at making sure their students are happy! I initially booked an in-person class that went a little too slow for me and swapped to online classes for a month to test that out instead. I was much happier with my online classes but was worried about switching and not getting refunded. The team reached out to refund and make sure I was getting value out of my classes which is the most important thing. I'm excited to take my DEF with this school!

I can highly recommend Learn French in Vancouver as a way to build your French conversational skills and confidence. After a few years studying French I was ready to start applying it in a "real-life" conversational setting. That is exactly what I found here. Aurelie, my teacher, has the most wonderful way of guiding us while encouraging and creating an ease among us all. It is fun, upbeat and instructive. I'd say to anyone- go ahead, sign up. This is a really good experience.

Salut! I've been together with Learn French for four months and it has been an enriching experience for me. Our instructor Eloïse is fun, incredibly supportive and enthusiastic, which greatly motivates the class. In addition, every instructor in the course is extremely passionate about both teaching this beautiful language and explaining in depth the French culture that contributes to this process. While the course provides a solid foundation, I also recognize the importance of personal effort to master this challenging but rewarding journey. I'm happy to choose to Learn French and thankful for guiding us on this exciting language-learning journey! Un grand merci!

I had a wonderful experience with Learn French in Vancouver! My teacher was Marion and she did a great job of explaining the concepts and ensuring a balance between going through exercises and providing opportunities for us to practice conversational French. I learned so much in my 8 week session, and I would highly recommend!

I learned french with Justine 😊. She was super friendly and professional at the same during my french classes. I learned most of the difficult concepts very easily because of her teaching style. She helped me clear all my doubts and encouraged me throughout my french learning journey. I had a wonderful time learning french with her.

Salut a tous, I am getting my online classes with Ms. Aurelie (Lilly). Always a fun, smiling, courteous and engaging lesson with lots of helpful corrections. She is supportive, promotive during the classes. I like her sense of humor, though. Merci beaucoup!

What is the TEF exam for Canada?

The TEF, or “Test d’Évaluation de Français,” is a French language proficiency test valid for 2 years, that can help you with your Canadian immigration process

It depends on your situation. We invite you to visit canada.ca  for the latest updates for each of the following programs: Federal Skilled Worker program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class

The amount of time it takes to prepare for the TEF (Test d’Évaluation de Français) exam can vary depending on several factors, including your current level of French proficiency, your language learning goals, and how intensively you study. Here’s a general guideline:

CLB 4 or 5: If you’re starting from scratch or have very basic French skills, you may need several months of consistent study to reach a level where you can comfortably handle the TEF exam. A realistic timeframe could be 9 to 12 months of regular study.

CLB 7: If you already have a foundation in French and aim to achieve an intermediate level, you might need an extra 6 months of focused preparation.

It’s important to note that everyone’s learning pace is different, and your commitment to daily practice, study materials, and access to language resources can significantly impact your preparation timeline.

At Learn French in Vancouver, we offer specialized training designed to help you achieve a B2 level within six months of completing My French Transformation. Please note, that the school does not guarantee specific results for the TEF exam, as success depends on each student’s individual effort and dedication.

If you are a French beginner, please join our 6-month course “My French Transformation” first if you are aiming to reach levels CLB4 or CLB5. We also recommend studying at least an extra 10 hours per week outside your live classes during these first 6 months.  After completing this course and extra practice at home, you will be able to start preparing for the TEF exam levels CLB4 or 5.

If you already have an intermediate or advanced level in French and feel ready to prepare for the exam,  you will be able to start preparing for the TEF exam levels CLB7+.

We give you all the tools and guidance to succeed during this course, but please remember the preparation for the TEF exam requires a lot of studies on your side to reach the levels CLB 5-7. Keep it up and follow our program, complete all the homework and extra activities. On top of this preparation, it is highly recommended to immerse yourself in French culture by watching French movies and listening to French podcasts as you also need to understand French.

Please note that we offer TEF preparation classes but we are not an exam center, nor can we register on your behalf.  Contact the Alliance Francaise or College Educacentre to register for the exams and check availability before registering for our classes.  Our classes are non-refundable.

Once you register, we do not offer any refund, please make sure that you are ready to commit to the full TEF preparation course.
