Certified level testing

Obtain a certified language attestation with Swiss French School

A quick and comfortable way to prove your French level. Our attestation conforms with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) levels.

Why obtain a level evaluation?

  • Depending on the canton of residence, Swiss authorities require proof of proficiency in French to change from a B permit to a C permit.
  • Several professional organizations request a level attestation from a recognized language institution as a condition of employment.
  • It is recommended for any personal projects requiring French as a language (like language travels or exchange programs).

Where can you take the test and how does it work?

The test is carried out in our Geneva & Lausanne language centers for a CHF 150 fee.

Once the student has signed up and paid the inscription fee, he/she will be guided by a language assistant and a certified teacher through a written, online and finally an oral evaluation. The attestation will be given out personally to the student after the end of the evaluation.
