At the AUCP, we’re committed to foreign language fluency, and that’s why, in celebration of the Semaine de la Francophonie, we’re launching a series of blog posts highlighting why learning a foreign language is simply a necessity in today’s world.

On average, our Spring students improved their TEF scores by a very impressive 141 points – meaning global progress averaged 32% of their achievable progress.
But wait a minute… what’s a TEF?
