The Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) is a standardized test developed for non-native speakers of Chinese. It is designed to measure test takers’ listening and reading abilities.

The new version of the TOCFL is launched and administered in Taiwan in 2011. There are four levels in the new TOCFL— Level 2 (formerly For Beginners), Level 3 (formerly Basic), Level 4 (formerly Intermediate), and Level 5 (formerly Advanced), corresponding to A2, B1, B2, and C1 in Common European Framework Reference for Languages (CEFR), respectively. In addition to the adjustment of the format and structure, the number of the test items in the Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5 levels is changed over from 120 items to 100 items. The testing time for these three levels is 110 minutes and for the Level 2, it is 80 minutes. Each level has two sections, Listening and Reading. The test items are all multiple-choice questions, each of which accounts for one point. Wrong answers will not subtract points from the total scores you have gained. Examinees can choose the test levels best suited to them based on their Chinese language proficiency and learning background.
