The TEF (Test d’évaluation de français) is an international reference test which evaluates skills and competences in French. 
TEF (Test d 'evaluation de francais)是一项国际语言测试,以评估法语的技能和能力。

What is it for? 它有什么用?
The TEF allows you to assess your French level in any professional, academic or mobility contexts and particularly for immigrating to Canada and obtaining Canadian permanent residency or citizenship with the TEF Canada, or immigrating to Québec with the TEF Québec (TEFAQ).
What is the test like?测试是什么形式的?
The TEF consists of 5 parts: listening(compréhension orale), reading(compréhension écrite), speaking (expression orale), writing (expression écrite) and languagestructure (structure de langue).
Depending on your purpose, you should choose the version of the TEF that includes the tests you need. For instance, the TEF Canada is made up of four skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) while it excludes the language structure section, or the TEF for a Canadian citizenship application and the TEF Quebec include the four skills but two skills (reading and writing) are optional. 
根据你的目的,你应该选择包含你需要测试部分的TEF考试。例如,TEF Canada由四项技能(听、读、说、写)组成,但不包括语言结构部分,或者TEF For a Canadian citizenship application和TEF Quebec包含四项技能,但有两项技能(读和写)是可选的。

The TEF Canada and Express Entry
Since June 6th, 2017, you can get additional points for good French skills in the official languages section. As CIC indicates, if you score NCLC 7 or higher on all four French language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), you will get 15 additional points if you scored CLB 4 or lower in English (or you have not had an English test); or 30 additional points if you scored CLB 5 or higher on all four English skills.
自2017年6月6日起,你可以在官方语言部分获得法语技能的加分。CIC指出,如果你在所有四项法语技能(听、说、读、写)中都获得NCLC 7或更高的分数,就算你在英语测试中只获得clb4或更低的分数(或你没有参加过英语测试),你仍将获得额外的15分;如果你的四项英语技能都达到clb5或更高,你还可以再加30分。
How to get my results? 怎样获得考试结果?
The tests are evaluated using a 7-level scale, from level 0 (most basic skills) to level 6 (complete proficiency). This scale refers to the six levels (A1 to C2) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) and the 12 levels of Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). You could find the equivalency chart below:
CLB Reading Writing Listening Speaking
10 263-277 393-415 316-333 393-415
9 248-262 371-392 298-315 371-392
8 233-247 349-370 280-297 349-370
7 207-232 310-348 249-279 310-348

4 121-150 181-225 145-180 181-225
Your results will be transmitted within 15 working days from the date of receipt of the session material. However, if your test included a writing test, the correction time is longer. Allow between 4 to 6 weeks to receive your results.
A certificate of results will be sent to you. Each certificate is detailed and personalized (with your photo and your signature). It indicates the number of points obtained, the level reached, and a description of your current skills in general French.
The validity of the results is two years. You can retake the test as many times as you want, within a period of 2 months between exams.
