What is TELC?

TELC stands for: The European Language Certificate

In my most recent search for an adequate practice test book for the German language proficiency test B2 for one of my students, I found only two books listed as Testbuch (practice test book) versus many more in the category Übungsbuch (workbook) on

Mit Erfolg zum Goethe-Zertifikat B2. Testbuch
Mit Erfolg zum Zertifikat Deutsch: Mit Erfolg zu telc Deutsch B2, Zertifikat Deutsch Plus, Testbuch

Knowing my student would ask me about the meaning of telc Deutsch B2 (see second book), I used the search engine to locate this acronym’s meaning. After about visiting 10 websites listing the acronym, I noticed that none of them gave a proper definition.

In English class, we had learned to first spell out all the words, then add its acronym in brackets behind it. After that, one could refer to it by only using the shortened version, e.g. The European Language Certificate (TELC)

Anyway, the only website doing it the correct way, was Language Course Finder.

But now I have to wonder weather there is a big difference between the above mentioned books. One is to prepare for the Goethe Zertifikat B2, and the other for …telc Deutsch B2. With the European Framework of Reference for Language Learning and Teaching (CEF), recognizing proficiency levels became easier,  but not material selection.
