Overview: Differences between the language levels

telc examinations are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment: the CEFR. This is the basis for the development of curricula, examinations, textbooks etc. throughout Europe. It distinguishes between six levels of competence and describes what learners can express and understand at each level.

The CEFR describes six internationally comparable levels:

Level A1 - First steps

They understand familiar words and very simple sentences when spoken slowly and clearly and can read and understand individual words and very simple sentences. 

They can communicate in short words and fill out a form, for example.

Level A2 - Communicate

Understand the essentials in short, clear and simple messages and read short, simple texts.

You can use a range of sentences to communicate in everyday situations and write short, simple notes, messages and personal letters.

Level B1 - Actively participate

You understand the main information about work, school and leisure and can read and understand texts using very common everyday or professional language.

You can take part in conversations about family, hobbies, work or current events and write simple, coherent texts on familiar topics.

Level B2 - Co-create

Sie können Redebeiträgen und den meisten Fernsehsendungen und Spielfilmen folgen, wenn das Thema einigermaßen vertraut ist und lesen Artikel, Berichte und literarische Prosatexte.

Sie verständigen sich und fließend und können aktiv an Diskussionen teilnehmen. Detaillierte Texte wie zum Beispiel Aufsätze, Berichte oder Briefe können Sie formulieren und darin einen Standpunkt argumentativ vertreten.

Level C1 - Manage

You can easily understand longer speeches, TV programmes and films and read long, complex factual and literary texts.

You express yourself spontaneously, fluently, flexibly and precisely and write clearly and in a well-structured way about complex topics, choosing the appropriate style in each case.

Level C2 - Act with confidence

You understand spoken language without difficulty, even when it is spoken quickly, and read all texts effortlessly.

My personal tips for you:

It is always an advantage to come to the exam well-rested and not on an empty stomach.



Please remember your ID card.



It is worth arriving in good time for the telc exam, at least a quarter of an hour before the appointment. This gives you the opportunity to calm down and concentrate. We can also clarify everything you need to know together during this time.



Even if exams are always exciting: Try to take a deep breath from time to time. If you feel stressed, it's best to take a short break.


Your results are usually available after four to six weeks. You don't need to worry about anything. We will contact you automatically. And very important: Please inform us of any changes of address so that we can actually deliver the result.
