Welcome to Relocation Garland.

So, after writing How To Pass TEF Canada exams some time ago, I got a comment 2 days ago from Reshmi asking me to please send him some of my writing samples please because he was very scared.

To start with, just as many of us dread about IELTS exams which we showed how to scale here, the question I see often is how can I prepare for TEF Canada?

First all, TEF means Test d’Evaluation de Français (TEF).

TEF is an international benchmark test that measures your level of knowledge and skills in French.

Just as IELTS is accepted worldwide, TEF follows suit, most especially for those who are seeking relocation to Canada.


How to Pass TEF Canada

The secret to passing the TEF Canada test is getting fully prepared in the areas of Oral comprehension (CO), written comprehension (CE), Oral Expression (EO), Written Expression (EE), and Vocabulary and syntax (LS).

Also, concentrate on the few resource materials you have and prepare very well.

And with the help of the video lessons + free PDFs, you will soon get you will have been confident of scaling through.

Because this article is about TEF past questions PDF, I recommend you check out a full guide on how to prepare for TEF Canada.

Final note on the TEF Canada questions and answers resources

Like IELTS, the TEF is recognized by many universities and schools, especially in Canada, to certify your level of French as part of the admission procedure.

If you are seeking relocation to Canada then you want to contact the institution you wish to attend directly: they will tell you the number and type of TEF tests you will have to take.

And for the TEF sample questions, all you have on this page is more than enough for you to pass the test easily.

Additionally, you can get a book like “Vite et Bien” to add up if you want more, else, at times, less is better.

So, all in all, good luck with your test as you make good use of the listed TEF Past Questions.
