Collaboration with telc

As an international education provider, we enjoy rewarding and successful relationships with numerous top-ranking partners. In addition to the telc examination centres and partner schools, we collaborate with government departments, universities, businesses and other educational institutions.

Our strengths

Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

telc tests are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which describes language proficiency at six levels and outlines what learners can understand and express at each level. The use of the CEFR guarantees objective, standardised and high-quality language skills assessment.

Ten languages from a single provider

telc offers over 80 tests in ten languages. No matter what the purpose, be it naturalisation, vocational training or access to higher education: telc - language tests are widely recognised by companies, government agencies and universities, throughout Europe.

Highest quality in test development

As a member of the Association for Language Testers in Europe (ALTE), our language certificates guarantee the highest quality according to the latest scientific standards. telc bases its tests on the quality standards of the ALTE, whose main concern is the quality of language testing. All telc examinations – during every phase of their development – are geared to these quality standards and are continuously evaluated.

Training courses

We offer more than language certificates: telc training specialises in training courses for teachers and staff working in language education. Courses, workshops and seminars are also offered in-house and are customised for your institution.
