What do I have to be able to do for the telc A2 exam?
The telc A2 exam is a general language exam. This means that it is suitable for all people who have already attended approximately 250-300 German lessons or have acquired German language skills at an advanced beginner level respectively.
In general, you can orientate yourself on the can-do rules of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR, English: CEFR). If you have mastered the content specified there, you are well prepared for your telc examination.
Why do I need a telc A2 exam?
telc certificates offer the unbeatable advantage of being recognized internationally by official bodies such as universities, companies and government offices. The transparent level system, which is based on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference), ensures that the levels are clearly arranged and defined.
If you are specifically taking the telc A2 exam, you can use this certificate primarily to prove that you have already mastered the German language at an advanced beginner level and are, therefore, able to communicate in German.

How is the telc A2 exam structured?
Like all telc exams, the exam at language level A2 consists of two parts:
- written part
- oral part
On the day of the exam itself, you will usually take the written part first, followed directly by the oral part.
Structure of the written exam
The duration of the telc A2 written examination is 70 minutes in total, consisting of the components, listening comprehension and reading comprehension. A duration of 20 minutes is allotted for both task areas. The remaining 30 minutes are available for written expression.
Structure of the oral examination
Your telc A2 oral exam will last approximately 16 minutes. Please note that you will not be given any preparation time for this. In most cases, it takes place with another candidate and consists of a conversation or an interview.
The oral part of the exam consists of three parts:
Task 1: The first task of your telc A2 oral examination is to introduce yourself individually.
Task 2: You will then be given cards with so-called Wh-questions, which will help you with task number 2. Now, the task is to have an everyday conversation with your conversation partner.
Task 3: The last task is to make an agreement or negotiate something together. This could be, for example, finding a date to buy a gift together.
