Our exam preparation course for the telc exams is add-on to any other Liden & Denz program.
Liden & Denz is the only official telc examination centre in Russia. Telc tests general language competence and focuses on communicative competence, rather then academic skills. The telc exam can be taken once per month in any of our centres and is offered at four different levels (A1, A2, B1 and B2).
The telc preparation course with 5 lessons in mini groups of maximum 5 participants is scheduled for the week of the exam (Friday is exam day) and is a compulsory requirement for all students wishing to take the telc exam at our centre.
TELC EXAM FEES (In-House Examinations)
- A1 and A2 Levels: 70 €
- B1 and B2 Levels: 110 €
Students are able to book their telc exam in advance or while at school until 4 weeks prior to the exam date. Extra mailing costs will apply if participants require delivery of the certificate outside Russia (EUR 10 for a regular airmail).
Exam dates 2015: 6 Feb; 6 Mar; 3 Apr; 30 Apr; 29 May; 26 Jun; 24 Jul; 21 Aug; 18 Sep; 16 Oct; 13 Nov; 11 Dec.
For students not requiring a visa to Russia or Latvia, the booking deadline is 1 week prior to arrival. For students requiring a visa to Russia: for all short–term courses (up to 4 weeks) the booking deadline is 3 weeks prior to arrival. For all long-term courses in Russia (5 weeks and more) bookings should reach us at least 8 weeks prior to arrival. For students requiring a visa to Latvia: the booking deadline is 3 weeks prior to arrival for courses in our Riga centre.
We do all we can to ensure that students’ requirements are met. However, if the language centres cannot provide the preferred type of accommodation, that does not constitute a case for reimbursement.
Host families: Liden & Denz confirms home stay and shared flat accommodation three weeks prior to the course start date (immediately - if enrolling later). If required, host-family change can be organised after arrival, but only on weekends. If a change is required immediately, extra fees will apply (equivalent to one week accommodation costs).
For home-stay and shared flat bookings arrival transfer is provided free of charge (from any airport or railway station).
Shared flats: Please note that an arrival transfer is compulsory (required for key handover and instructions).
Damage deposit: A deposit of €200 is secured on arrival at the school, by freezing that amount in your account. On your departure, followed by an inspection of your apartment, we will unblock the deposit money the next working day. Costs incurred by damage, breakage or loss will be deducted from your deposit.
Private apartments: Apartments are selected prior to arrival according to the information sent by mail. If necessary, an apartment can be changed after arrival but not earlier than one full week after arrival date. The apartment change handling fee is €200. In case of cancellation less than two weeks prior to the arrival date we will charge a cancellation fee of up to €500.
