At our examination centre in Munich, we offer you the opportunity to take a telc examination every month. Below we explain which levels we offer:
These advantages await you at speakeasy Munich:
speakeasy has been an experienced examination center for telc examinations for many years. With a telc certificate you receive an official document that proves your language skills. Why did we choose telc? It's simple: telc gGmbH (which stands for The European Language Certificates, by the way) certificates are recognized throughout Germany and even worldwide - by German authorities, universities, and other public and private organisations! Thanks to our experience, we know how smooth processes work and do our best to offer you the most relaxed exam day possible.
But we are not only at the forefront when it comes to conducting telc exams: we are also the right place to help you to prepare for your exam! You will learn everything you need to know about German as a language in our language courses, for example our online intensive courses or the evening courses at the school. You also have the option of taking a specific online preparation course. If you would like even more intensive preparation, our private lessons are an ideal option - here you can work on your individual strengths and weaknesses and get targeted feedback from one of our speakeasy teachers.
We offer telc exams for levels A1, B1, B2 and C1. For level C1 there are even two different formats: C1 General and C1 Hochschule. If you want to study at a German university, the C1 Hochschule format is the right one for you.
Here we introduce you to the skills you should have for each level and how the telc exam is structured:
At the A1 level you can hold and understand simple everyday conversations in German. You can introduce yourself, say where you come from, what your hobbies are and ask other people about them. You have mastered the first grammar basics, but mistakes are still allowed. To reach level A1 you need about 100 hours in group lessons (which can easily be reached with our intensive courses!).
Being able to prove the language level A1 with a telc certificate is necessary for certain visa types, for example if you want to apply for spousal reunification. You can find the dates and prices for our A1 exams here and register here.
The structure of the telc A1 exam
There is a written and an oral part in the telc A1 exam. You have 65 minutes for the written part and the oral exam lasts about 11 minutes. Please note that there is no preparation time for the oral exam at telc A1 level.
With level B1 you can already organise your everyday life in Germany well. You have learned all important grammar aspects and can speak in detail and coherently about familiar topics.
Proof of level B1 is often required if you want to become a naturalised German citizen or start an apprenticeship. The current dates and prices can be found in our overview , and you can register here.
The structure of the telc B1 exam
The telc B1 examination has a written and an oral part. In the written part, you will be given tasks on reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and listening comprehension. You also have to write a text. The total duration of the written exam is 2.5 hours. At speakeasy you have your oral exam on the same day. Before you start the oral exam, you have a preparation time of 20 minutes: in this time, you can familiarise yourself with the tasks and make notes.
At level B2 you already have an advanced knowledge of German. You can communicate on many topics, no longer just those with which you are immediately familiar. So, with a B2 level you are already well equipped for the working world! Some universities also accept a B2 level for admission to a course of study - but you should ensure that this applies to your course before booking the exam.
The structure of the telc B2 exam
The telc B2 exam consists of a written part and an oral part. In the written exam you have to show what you can do in the areas of reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, listening comprehension and text production. Before the oral exam you will have a 20-minute preparation time in which you can look at the tasks and make notes.
With level C1 you are already a German professional. You have a very broad vocabulary and make very few - if any - grammatical errors. You can express yourself spontaneously on a variety of topics and also discuss at an abstract level.
The telc Deutsch C1 exam can officially prove your knowledge! Such a certificate is especially popular with employers. Please note, however, that universities do not usually recognize this certificate. They require the special telc C1 university exam, which you can also take with us.
Here you can find our dates and prices for telc Deutsch C1. You can register directly on our website.
The structure of the telc Deutsch C1 exam
There are two different parts of the exam: The Written exam and the oral exam. In the written exam you start with tasks on reading comprehension and language modules. Language modules are vocabulary and grammar tasks. After that, you have a 20-minute break to catch your breath before continuing with the listening comprehension. Immediately after that you can start with the Written expression, where you have to write a text yourself.
Before your oral exam, you will have a preparation time of 20 minutes. Here you will be given the task for your presentation and can think about a structure and suitable arguments.
This is the right exam for you if you need to prove your German language skills for university entrance. We have summarized everything you need to know about the telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule exam on a separate page. You can find this page here.
