Teaching Assistant Program in France


TAPIF applications open in mid-October for the following academic year. You can apply through and you will find more details about the program and application process on the French Culture website.

Part of your application is a French language evaluation. To get your French evaluated, we offer two options:

  1. Take a TCF TP exam
  2. Book a private evaluation with one of our instructors.
    These will take place between November-December. Please contact us to arrange an evaluation. You will need to enter the email of the instructor in your application so that they receive the appropriate materials needed for your language evaluation.
    Evaluation Fee: $60

The Alliance Française de Chicago can only help you with your language evaluation. For more information about the TAPIF application, please visit
