Placement Test

Complete and false beginners (you can’t remember the beginner syllabus) may enrol directly on one of our Beginner 1 (A1) courses online.
Young Learners can register by filling out and returning an enrolment form to (No placement test needed)

Those who already know some French should complete a placement test, which is offered free of charge.

The placement test consists of two assessments: one written and one oral.
The placement test is a way for us to better understand your strengths and needs in order to recommend the course best suited to your current level. It is very important and part of the services d’excellence provided by the Institut français in London.

Written test

The written test comes first. It takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
This will be followed by an informal 10-minute interview over the phone or at the Institut français Language Centre, 13 Cromwell Place, London SW7 2JN.
