Placement Test

If you are a complete or false beginner (you can’t remember the beginner syllabus) you may enrol directly on one of our Beginner 1 (A1) courses. Please create your account and register online.

 
Those who already know some French should complete a placement test, which is offered free of charge. 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.
The placement test consists of two assessments:

  • The online written test comes first. It takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
  • Oral test : informal 10-minute interview over the phone or at the Institut français Language Centre, 13 Cromwell Place, London SW7 2JN.
