The other six—the Goethe-Zertifikat tests—are broken down into six levels of language ability. Luckily, the Goethe-Institut offers lots of helpful practice materials right on their website. To bulk up your vocabulary and fine-tune your communication skills, make sure to mix FluentU into your study regimen.

Or you might be given a few more sentences and asked which of them fits best in certain places.

This fill-in-missing-words type of question is relatively common in advanced levels.


It tests not only your comprehension of the article but also your ability to predict what other words might be. The fill-in-the-blank exercises will make a comeback here too. The writing section for advanced tests will definitely involve a short essay of around words, usually describing a graph or diagram.

And here you may be in for a shock—it has to be written freehand! Listening The listening section at lower levels is again geared more toward everyday communication. You may also hear descriptions of sequences of events and then be required to pick out and write down certain details. Speaking The speaking section comes last, which makes for a real test of endurance. Fortunately, the speaking part is only about 10 to 15 minutes long at the longest.

Or you may be given a list of common everyday questions and time to prepare, then the examiner will choose one at random and initiate a conversation. Some admit applicants with a lower score. Each paper is graded some universities require a certain grade in all parts of the exam while some just count the total mark. Verdict: This exam is a specialist test, only really of interest if you need to prove your level for university matriculation.

It is also potentially useful for students and academic who want to prove their competence in German at home, in advance of an academic visit to Germany or at the end of a study-abroad period in a German university as a visiting student rather than fully matriculated.

German language certificates - which one is for you?

As noted above, the higher Goethe-Institut and telc certificates are universally recognised, though, so why would you bother with TestDAF or the alternative DSH exam, discussed below. The answer is that you may prefer content more narrowly focussed. Also, as against telc, you will often be able to take the exam at a Goethe-Institut or elsewhere without having to travel to Germany. For more info, check the website. Juni This means that there is quite a bit of variation in the rules as you will see in the summary below.

Most, but not all German universities offer the exam. There is one exam level but three grades see below. A German-German dictionary is often allowed. The emphasis is on testing comprehension not on linguistic accuracy so the exam is very much focussed on your practical ability to follow lectures.

You have to pass the written examination to take the oral.

The oral lasts 20 minutes. As a legal draftsman, the obvious question for me is where 67 is in band 1 or 2 and what would happen if you get If you get one in one paper and two or three in the other, you get one overall. If you get 2 for the written paper and 3 for speaking, you get 2 overall. If 3 for written and 2 for speaking, your total is only 3.

Where and when can you take the DHS German exam? Some colleges and universities require you already to have a study place on your subject course before you can take the DSH. The exam is usually held before the beginning of the semester. Some universities run it twice a year, others — four times. Some institutions charge, others do not. Those that do set their own fees, usually between and euros. Some limit the number of retakes and require a time gap between them, others have no such restrictions.

What is the DSH German language certificate valid for? Level 1 enables you to matriculate provided you take additional language classes and retake the exam.

Otherwise, it only admits you to courses which are taught bilingually usually German and English and for some technical subjects. For most courses of study DHS2 is the minimum requirement.

In a few institutions medine or dentistry require DHS3. This could either be an inconvenience, or a great way to start getting into university life, depending on your perspective. There is more info on the dsh website and from the individual HE institutions.

This is an exam only offered to children at participating secondary schools, of which there are more than 11, worldwide. These were traditionally outside Germany but the exams are now sometimes offered in the country as well. There are two levels of the exam. Level 2 proves that you have adequate knowledge of the language to study at university but always check with your university of choice. For more information check here. There is only one exam. If you are graded at A2 it is considered a pass but you have the option to extend the course to reach B1.

Have I missed any exams out? Let me know in the comments below or drop me an email! I have a book suggestion for you as well It is written by Joseph Rosenberg and is called "German - How to speask and write it. You can find it on itunes free podcasts and can download it. Deutsche Welle is very good and it is worth listening to the slowly spoken news as this will help with the A1 test.

I "third" Deutschwelle. I took the integration course with a guy who used Deutschwelle and taught himself up to level B1. After that he needed a class. He skipped the first 4 months of our course, and he didn't seem to have suffered for it.

I don't know what happened to him, but I'm sure he passed the exam. Posted 27 Jun I used a book from Assimil, with cd's: German with ease. The book is quite cheap, the cd's are not but I could get them at my library I quite liked it, and it has a summary of the grammar in the back. It goes up to B2, all info here: Although you might have to cross-reference which topics you need for A1 the fact that the text is mostly laid out for year olds took out some of the impossible grammatical explanations from my German teacher and textbooks!

Not saying that you like funny cartoons and colourful pages when you're learning a language but it really helped me! Posted 29 Jun I started learning German in January and after less then six months I am well above A1 which I easily passed in April. I would strongly recommend textbooks Schritte which I still use. Topics are so well structured, concrete and useful in everyday life.

The link above offers free additional excercises which follow the structure of the book. In addition to this I find very useful various German learning contents at DW sorted per levels and different learning needs. I forgot to mention that this book I recommend is used by Goethe Institut, it has everything that should be covered for taking A1 exam with Goethe Institut.

For A1 level it takes to go through books Schritte 1 and Schritte 2. The second book contains sample of the actual test. Posted 2 Jul It baffles me how webpages for instance http: The thought has never crossed my mind, just like it never did on the English learning resources when I learned English.

I have no idea why or how, but that has never been an obstacle to find everything I needed.
