Great news, I achieved a B1 and can now apply for my French nationality! My husband and children have dual nationality and soon I will too. The whole process leading up to my TEF IRN exam at the Alliance Francaise Cambridge was an absolute pleasure. I experienced prompt and friendly email communication as well as a simple booking process. Added bonuses were the onsite free parking, a relaxing environment, easy to use equipment and of course a smiley examiner.

If you want your TEF IRN exam to be stress free then sit it in Cambridge! Communication prior to the exam was excellent and once there we found a beautiful venue with ample parking. The team were friendly and supportive and I felt at ease through the whole exam. I absolutely recommend it.

I chose to do the TEF exam with Alliance Francaise in Cambridge because, firstly, I needed to do one of the recognised examinations for the purpose of French citizenship, and secondly the location was considerably more convenient than going to London.  A tentative email solicited a friendly response, and subsequent questions were answered assiduously and promptly.  It was a great experience for what is (should be!) a one-off event.  They organised a sitting within two weeks when they had requests from two people for the exam - this is a great service, especially compared with the alternative in London which actually cancelled a convenient exam time to merge two sittings into one which then became full.  On the day the other candidate and I were well looked after with incredibly friendly staffI am happy to recommend them.

I sat my IRN TEF exam last Friday at the Alliance Francaise Exam Centre in Cambridge, and am very pleased that only four days later I received an email to confirm that I had passed with a level B1.  This means that I can now apply for French nationality, as I am planning to spend more time in France in my retirement.  My husband is French and my children have dual nationality, so by taking the TEF, I too can now have dual nationality and not be bound by how many days I can spend in France.  I believe I was the first candidate to sit the new exam format in Cambridge, but it was relatively straight forward.  After having watched a few suggested tutorials and practised with the app ‘Francais 3.0,’ I felt familiar with the types of tasks I would be asked to do.  The staff at Alliance Francaise were really welcoming and supportive which helped me feel at ease, as I hadn’t sat an exam for many years.  I was therefore relieved to have passed, and look forward to embracing my new nationality very soon.
