Advice/Things to Know About TEF Express

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

Not sure if anyone is in the same boat as me but I signed up for the TFI (October 17, in Laval) and it recently got cancelled. I was debating doing the TEF Express but have heard that it is more difficult than the TFI...

Does anyone have any tips or advice on this topic? Do you know of any location or establishment that is actually going through with the TFI in person? 

Thanks in advance!

I did the TEF express. It was more difficult than the practice tests available through "prep my future" but I still managed to get an acceptable score for UdeM which is C1 in both categories. I have never written the TFI but for context I am an anglo montrealer that went to english school my whole life including cegep and uni. 

I hesitate to offer this to a stranger on the internet, but if you want to try a practice test I still have access to my prep my future account and would consider sharing it as long as you're not going to share it any further or dox me in anyway.

I did the TEF Express in may and missed the c1 mark by 1% so Udem revoked my admission sadly. It's definitely a harder test than the TFI so just be aware! I'd say study more but like it also just was short on time limits too. 

I'm reapplying this year and just hoping there will be a TFI in person before its too late cause I do not want to try for the TEF express again in all honesty. Good luck to us both!

I really appreciate your gesture! For now, I am set on writing the TFI if one of the centres doesn't end up cancelling their sessions. If anything changes, I shall let you know haha!

Ugh the same thing happened to me when I applied 2 years ago - it sucks. Did you manage to successfully sign up for any of the TFI dates without it being cancelled a few weeks later? I tried to sign up at college momo and now UQAM but both exams are cancelled :( let me know if you have any luck.

 

Also good luck to you for the exam!!

Not to derail, but is the TEF Express the only option assuming TIF is not offered in-person due to covid? 

Right now I've had a very hard time finding another option. I recently signed up for the TFI at Centre Lartigue (in person as well) but if that gets cancelled too then I really think the last option is TEF express :(
