GERMAN EXAM PREPARATION | Goethe + telc
A good knowledge of German can be personally and professionally rewarding. An excellent way to demonstrate your knowledge is to gain a language certificate from an internationally-recognised language organisation. Exam certificates issued by Goethe and telc are accepted in both professional and academic contexts around the world. Preparing for these exams at any level requires carefully tailored training. We offer individual preparation lessons that ensure you are prepared in the shortest possible time. This applies to all sections of the exam.
Individual live German lessons
Learning German online you can enjoy live face-to-face lessons with your own private teacher to thoroughly prepare you for your exam. You choose which sections of the exam you wish to practice on dates and at times that suit you. All exams test reading and listening comprehension, as well as oral and written expression. During your training, you’ll be able to share a screen to work on texts and send texts and audio files back and forth. This will allow you to practise all exam sections and keep a record of your online sessions for later review. Your trainer will select the course material and take you through official practice tests.
Goethe and telc exams
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (GER) serves as the basis for evaluating language level. This framework describes and scales language skills from beginner (level A1) to expert (level C2). Certificates at different levels allow language skills to be meaningfully compared. Below you will find an overview of the two German language certificates:
Goethe exams, levels A1 to C2
Exam dates are available approximately once a month at the Goethe Institutes in several German cities. You can take the following 6 exams, corresponding to the 6 different language levels:
Level B2: Zertifikat B2 (companies demand this level)
Level C2: Zertifikat C2 = GDS großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom (university entrance exam)

All exams comprise the following sections:
– Reading comprehension: 3 to 5 parts depending on the language level
– Listening comprehension: 3 to 4 parts depending on the language level
– Written expressions: 2-3 parts depending on the language level
– Oral expression: 2-3 parts depending on the language level
The six level exams can be taken in 12 Goethe Institutes in Germany. Please note: You can take the oral exam only if you have passed the written sections (reading, listening, writing). This means you will have to show up twice at the Goethe institute to take the exam.
telc certificate for all levels from A1 to C2
telc stands for the european language certificates. It is a subsidiary of the German adult education association with its own exams. These exams are recognized at a national and international level. You will find a list of all 18 exams available for adults aged 16+ here…read more / mehr lesen

The exams take place regularly at several licensed institutes. For an additional charge, you can also arrange an exam on a date of your choice with an exam center. Another practical advantage of this exam is that all sections are completed in one day. It is therefore not necessary to go back to the exam centre for the oral exam, as required for the Goethe exams.
You will be prepared by a team of teachers specialising in exam preparation and entirely familiar with all Goethe and telc test formats. These trainers have at least 10 years of professional experience in exam preparation and in many cases are licensed examiners themselves. Your exam preparation will be professional and carefully targeted to ensure you have the best chance of passing the exam the first time.
