The Chulalongkorn University Proficiency Test of Thai as a Foreign Language (CU-TFL)

A lot of our students that are taking Thai are interested in measuring their proficiency with an external examination. There is a university in Thailand that offers a proficiency test.

The CU-TFL is a standardized exam designed by the Sirindhorn Thai Language Institute to evaluate Thai language proficiency in speech, reading comprehension, listening, and writing. It is possible to take each exam separately, or all of them integrated as one test.

The CU-TFL can only be taken at one location: the Sirindhorn Thai Language Institute at Chulalongkorn University. The address for this institute is as follows:

Room 405 Chulawit 1 Building, 4th floor, Henri Dunant Rd. Wangmai, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330 Thailand.

To register for the CU-TFL, please click here and follow the instructions listed under “Registration Process.” To take the reading, listening, and writing tests, it costs $15 each, while it costs $45 to take the oral proficiency exam.

For more information regarding the CU-TFL, please contact Ms. Paveena Kanjanapayont at or by phone at 02-218-9481.

Since the CU-TFL cannot be taken in the United States, we recommend taking an ACTFL OPI in Thai instead in order to determine oral proficiency. For more information regarding ACTFL OPIs, please click here.
