Thinking Of Getting Certified In French Language?

Updated: Sep 23, 2020






I believe there are two types of French language learners, those who want to learn French for personal and cultural reasons (i.e travel, adventure, bucket list) and those who need it for professional purposes (i.e career advancement, job placement e.t.c)


If you fall in the second category, then you may need to take a French language proficiency certification test. Your new bosses will have to confirm you really can hold a conversation in French and not just dabble your way around ''bonjour, comment ça va?''and then everything just vanishes.


Here are a list of French Language Certification exams recognized by the French Ministry of Education
