LCCI is the abbreviation for London Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The LCCI is the UK's largest Chamber of Commerce and Industry and one of the world's most renowned language education institutions.

The board of examiners of the London IHK is called LCCIEB - the abbreviation EB stands for Examinations Board. In addition to business and secretarial examinations, LCCIEB carries out foreign language examinations with a certificate in English.

Currently, the number of examinations performed annually by the LCCIEB in Germany is over 20,000 - more than 500,000 worldwide.

The total of 10 English LCCI exams are usually offered in 3 levels. The oral exams are optionally offered, in which the speech and listening comprehension of the participant is tested in a conversation with an examiner.

LCCI Certificates are highly recognized internationally and are highly valued by internationally renowned business enterprises for their recruitment and training of personnel. Even when applying to universities, public authorities, many educational institutions and commercial institutions, an LCCI certificate is very useful.


The WEFT certificates examine business English specific to the tourism industry. English is taught and tested as a working language and as a language for contact with international clients. The LCCI WEFT exam consists at each level of a prescribed written part as well as an additional voluntary oral part.

The LCCI WEFT certificates are aligned with the European Reference Framework (GER). LCCI WEFT Level1 corresponds to the levels B1 / B2, LCCI WEFT Level 2 corresponds to the levels B2 / C1 of the CEFR.

The WEFT exam is available for two level levels with increasing difficulty level (WEFT level 1 and WEFT level 2). At each level you can reach the following three rating levels.

  • 50% correct: "pass" = pass passed
  • 60% correct: "Credit" = Exam passed
  • 75% correct: "Distinction" = passed exam with distinction

LCCI EFB Level 1

EFB Level 1 is for those who have some English conversational skills in their job and can basically communicate in English about professional issues. The exam consists of a written and a voluntary oral exam. The written part consists of four tasks, which in turn query text production, reading comprehension, content analysis and information transfer.

The examiner can:

  • Understand, interpret and further develop simple business texts
  • manage business communication on a simple level
  • to express oneself fluently with the help of given information

1. Text production

This is about dealing with a communication task, ie writing a letter or a memo in which a certain, predetermined information is conveyed. The letter should have a size of about 150 to 200 words.

2. Reading comprehension

It examines both general and selective reading comprehension, ie the ability to specifically capture and present important information. The source text deals with an economic topic.

3. Content analysis

A non-written source should be evaluated, eg a graphic or a table. Questions are asked about the source, which are to be answered very briefly and precisely. The examining board here assesses your ability to analyze English content.

4. Information transfer

The query is to transfer information from an informal text to a form. The source text can be, for example, an informal fax whose content the "employee" transfers into a form and makes it accessible to his colleagues.

LCCI EFB Level 2

LCCI EFB Level 2 is aimed at people who often correspond to English in their job and generally require very little support in dealing with the English language. The exam consists of a written and a voluntary oral exam. The written part consists of three tasks, which test the mastery of the text production, the communicative competence in the working world as well as the text processing in the English language.

The examiner can:

  • understand business-standard, written communication
  • fluent, differentiated and grammatically correct to express specific issues
  • choose the appropriate expression and form of expression for the situation

1. Text production

The participant is confronted with a business situation: he works for a specific company, which is briefly described and must write a longer text in the form of a memo, an article or a report. The candidate has the opportunity to choose between three different questions.

2. Communicative competence

On a fictitious request a reply letter should be written. Hereby, emphasis is placed on the customary layout.

3. Text editing

The examiner expects the task either to write a text based on information given in the form of a sticky note or to reproduce a given text passage in his own words. Tested is the ability of text synthesis.


For the "warm-up" of the candidate, an introductory interview will be held with the examiner. Usually, questions about one's own person, profession or plans for the future are asked here. Subject of the actual oral exam is a pictorial representation for EFB Preliminary Level and Level 1. From EFB Level 2, the exam topic is no longer pictorial, but only given in writing.

In all examinations, an enclosed questionnaire serves both the examiner and the candidate as a guideline. The questions are only a suggestion of the examining board, in order to avoid lengthy pauses in speaking and need not necessarily be considered.


The topics of all oral exams are from the fields of commerce, transport, communication, education or tourism. Only the main part of the oral exam is judged, not the warm-up. In the foreground are the vocabulary, the listening comprehension, the fluent expression as well as the pronunciation and grammar of the candidate.
