Download and complete the appropriate test below. Email it to or bring it to FIAF for a walk-in evaluation (details below).

Adults (ages 18+) / Teens (ages 15–17)

Teens (ages 11–14)

Kids (ages 7–10)*

*If your child (ages 7+) does not write in French but can speak French, then he or she can skip the written section and go directly to the oral section.

Step 2: Oral Section

The written section must be followed by a short conversation in French with a FIAF teacher who will assess your speaking skills. This conversation can take place over the phone or in person. If you submit the written test online or via email, we will contact you to schedule the oral section. If you bring your written test to FIAF in person, the oral section will take place at that time.

Step 3: Class Registration

After both the written and oral sections of the test are evaluated, the teacher will recommend a suitable class. You may then register either online or in person at FIAF.

Note: Walk-in Evaluations
