About the test
This test evaluates your German vocabulary, grammar, comprehension and communication skills using the DSZ score that is aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The CEFR was developed by the Council of Europe as a way of standardizing the levels of language exams in different regions. It is very widely used internationally and all important exams are mapped to the CEFR. The CEFR organizes language proficiency in six levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2. These six reference levels (from Beginner to Proficiency) are widely accepted as the global standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.
The test is completely text-based and you need neither a microphone nor speakers. Please make sure to use a stable internet connection during the test execution.
