ECL German Exam

ECL stands for “European Consortium for the Certificate of Attainment in Modern Languages”

In 2017 when the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) audited the ECL Hungarian language exam on the basis of International Language Assessment Criteria and Standards. The Hungarian language exam was awarded ALTE’s quality mark (Q-mark), gaining more international recognition.

In 2020 ECL and its German partner, AFU GmbH, took on a new international challenge by pursuing ALTE accreditation for ECL’s German exam. The audit was successful, and in December 2020 the ECL German language exam obtained the ALTE’s quality mark. This language examination can now be associated with renowned German examinations such as Goethe, ÖSD, Telc and TestDaf.

These two successful audits prove the high-quality work carried out by the Foreign Language Centre of the University of Pécs in the field of language assessment. Additionally, these outcomes are beneficial for the test-takers as well. With ALTE’s quality mark the ECL Hungarian exam has become a recognized language assessment in several US states, and American students passing the Hungarian exam can now receive extra credit when applying to universities. The Q-mark offers promising perspectives to ECL German exam test takers as well. Candidates passing the paper-based exam will receive language certificates with the ALTE Q-mark, which significantly contributes to the international recognition of the exam and opens doors for successful test-takers to study, work or acquire citizenship in German-speaking countries.
