Liden & Denz becomes telc exam centre

01 June, 2014


Liden & Denz Language Centres in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Riga have all been granted licenses to become the first telc examination centres for Russian in Russia and Latvia.


The telc examinations are used in over 2,000 centres across 20 countries and are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR); the Russian test is available at A1, A2, B1 and B2 levels and focuses on communicative competence. The CEFR alignment provides international compatibility of language competence.

The three Liden & Denz centres have passed the necessary on-site inspections and 15 teachers have been trained and certified by telc to run the Russian language tests.

Julie Voevodina, Liden & Denz’s Managing Director, said there was there was big demand for the test. “It is a very good alternative to the purely academic TKRI exam. TKRI is fine if you want to study at a Russian university; telc is more for practical and job-related purposes.”

The telc tests have both written and oral parts, and can be taken once per month at Liden & Denz centres from July, costing between €70 (US$95) and €110 (US$149). Test results are quickly communicated, with an official telc certificate supplied within one month.
