Tests in Russian as a Foreign Language

Test of Russian as a Foreign Language (TRKI, TORFL) - an international exam to determine the level of Russian language proficiency.
Levels of proficiency in Russian as a foreign language are consistent with CERF (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment). Since 1997, the Russian State Testing System (TRKI) has been an official member of the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE).
Tests in Russian as a Foreign Language
The test consists of 6 different levels → A1 (elementary), A2 (basic), B1 (first certification), B2 (second certification), C1 (third certification), C2 (fourth certification).

Each test consists of 5 parts (subtests) → Vocabulary. Grammar, Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking.
Each part is given a specific time (depending on the level of the test and subtest).
The exam (the entire test) can be passed within two days, which we advise to take.

If you scored more than 66% for each subtest, then you passed the exam and get a certificate.
If one of the subtests you have is less than 66%, then you can re-do this subtest. At the same time, they give you the reference with information about the test results. You can repeat the subtest within 2 years.
