2018 Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) is Now Accepting Applications!

The Education Division of the Taipei Economic and Culture Office (TECO) in Boston will administer the 2018 Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) and Children Chinese Competency Certification (CCCC) on Sunday, October 28, 2018, 2:00-4:00 pm, at the Lexington Chinese School (221 Concord Ave.,Belmont, MA 02478) and on Sunday, November 4, 2018, 11:30 am-1:30 pm, at the Tzu Chi Academy Boston (9 Mudge Way, Bedford,MA 01730).
The TOCFL is intended for those that wish to measure their Chinese proficiency and is available in both traditional and simplified character versions. Since 2014, the levels of the TOCFL have been reformed in order to correspond to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment). The new version of the TOCFL has three proficiency bands: Band A, Band B, and Band C. Each of the bands has two levels.
According to the AP Course Description, “Course work provides students with opportunities to perform Intermediate to Advanced level tasks, and students are expected to achieve proficiencies throughout, and sometimes beyond, the Intermediate range as described in the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines.” Therefore, if students want to pass the AP test, they have to reach the intermediate level of the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, which corresponds to level 3 of the TOCFL. The students could take the TOCFL as a practice test for AP test preparation.TOCFL is designed for non-native speakers of Chinese. Those who wish to know about their level of Chinese proficiency, or those who want to study, work or do business in Chinese speaking countries are welcome to take the test.

Examinees who pass the test will receive a Chinese Proficiency Certificate as a credential for the following:
       Eligibility for the “Taiwan Scholarship” and “Ministry of Education Huayu Enrichment Scholarship” for government sponsored studying in Taiwan.
       Qualification for admission to academic programs at colleges or universities in Taiwan.
       Proof of Chinese language proficiency for individuals who wish to obtain Chinese-inclusive, bilingual employment globally.
       Incentive for those who are interested in learning Chinese.
