The French Institute is the official exam center in Estonia as regards certifications in French as a foreign language (diplomas and tests). 

These certifications enable you to gain formal recognition of your skills in French, from beginners to advanced levels.

Our certifications follow the Common European Framework guidelines (CEFR), that divide learners into six levels, and applies to all age groups and all types of public.

The CEFR is now widely used and to make it easier for educational institutions and employers to evaluate the language qualifications of candidates to education admission or employment.
