Preparation for the telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule Examination

In order to pass this exam successfully, you should prepare well and with sufficient time in advance.

A basic requirement is that you meet the language requirements for the exam, i.e. that you have successfully completed at least the C1 level. A C1 level means that you can express yourself spontaneously and fluently. You are able to understand colloquial expressions and to vary your linguistic style in a targeted manner. And all this with a high degree of grammatical correctness. If you do not currently meet the language requirements, we recommend that you take part in one of our German intensive courses, German evening courses or private lessons. In the German courses, you will practice your skills in the four competencies of reading, writing, listening and speaking. However, the linguistic requirements of the telc C1 Hochschule examination go beyond general language skills, as it tests university-related German language skills. You will practice these skills in academic language use in our preparation course telc C1 Hochschule. In addition, you will be familiarized with the structure of the exam by our specialized teachers. And you will learn what types of tasks you can expect and how to master them in the best possible way. The dates of our preparation course are of course coordinated with the exam dates.
