A so-called telc examination and satisfactory results in this language test are not uncommon in many areas of education and also for job applications at home and abroad. The telc language test practically serves as proof of a high and professional language level in one of about 10 foreign languages. A proof that is often needed, for example, to be able to study or work abroad.

In contrast to many other language examinations, the telc examination offers the great advantage that the language test is normally recognized and accepted everywhere in Europe. This largely rules out unpleasant surprises when applying to European universities and European employers. However, the telc exam requires some prerequisites to be able to master it successfully. In addition, the language test cannot be taken everywhere.

telc is practically the abbreviation for “The European Language Certificates”. Since this language test is based on common European reference frameworks, the test is therefore also accepted as proof in all European countries. This is not always the case with many other common language exams offered by private language schools, for example. Thus, with a telc examination and through successful results in this examination, you are always on the safe side when it comes to officially proving your language competence in a foreign language.

telc exam and achieve results in different foreign languages

The telc examination does not focus on a single foreign language. In fact, it can be completed in all major European and also international languages that are frequently relevant. This includes German and English. But also French, Spanish, Turkish and Italian as well as Portuguese. Likewise, the telc exam can be taken in Russian, Polish and also Arabic. From there, the language test is available in about 10 languages. Which language is relevant to you and requires official certification depends, of course, on your individual training plans and country goals. It is of course also possible to take several language exams in different languages, should this be necessary. Each telc language certificate is recognized individually in Europe.

What is a telc exam for?

“telc” is the abbreviation of “The European Language Certificates“, which offers language exams in 10 languages: German, English, Turkish, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish and Arabic and whose certificates are recognized throughout Europe. telc’s language tests are also based on the Common European Framework of Reference(CEFR).

In order to study or work in Germany, or for various reasons, employers or authorities require certain language skills, which can be proven with telc certificates recognized throughout Europe.

Many people come into contact with the so-called telc examination for the first time when it comes to planning and shaping their studies or even their professional career. In the global age, it is not uncommon for a certain period of study, or even the entire study program, to be completed abroad. However, in order to enroll at foreign universities, proof of language proficiency is often required. This is the only way to guarantee that the student is able to follow the daily study routine and pass exams. The situation is similar for academics who would like to shape their further professional career abroad. Here, above all, a job-related telc examination is required, which is oriented towards everyday life and the individual working environment. This is often necessary, especially in medical professions, but also in technical fields, and is also a prerequisite in the catering and tourism industries.

Language test as important proof for profession, study and training

Languages give one access to new career paths and educational options. But it is not always enough to have learned a foreign language yourself through online courses or textbooks. Instead, official educational institutions and also employers require official proof that the language level is really high. The telc language test offers exactly that with a passing score. However, it is important here to choose a telc language exam that fits your future plans. In fact, different types of exams are offered, intended for different groups of people.

Which telc exam is suitable for you?

The telc language examination is offered in different variations, whereby the examination content can vary greatly in terms of subject matter and concept.

Here, the teacher has the opportunity to more specifically address the strengths and weaknesses of the student and to optimize and individualize practice methods and learning methods. Also, for course participants who are easily distracted, unsure of learning and working in groups, or also want to benefit from maximum flexibility in lesson planning, taking a one-on-one language course could certainly be worthwhile.
