European Framework of Reference
for languages

The examinations are based on the CEFR, the
European Framework of Reference for Languages.

A1 (beginner): At CEFR level A1, candidates are absolute beginners in the German language. This level aims to teach basic language skills. The exams cover simple and everyday topics, such as introducing people, ordering food in a restaurant or asking for basic information. Candidates are expected to understand short, simple sentences and answer simple questions..

A2 (elementary knowledge): CEFR level A2 is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of German. Examinations at this level include the ability to hold longer conversations on familiar topics, understand short texts and exchange personal information. Candidates should be able to communicate in everyday situations in German, even if their vocabulary and grammar are still limited.

B1 (independent use of language): At CEFR level B1, candidates should already be able to use the German language independently. The exams at this level cover a wider range of topics and require the ability to communicate in more complex everyday situations. Candidates should be able to understand longer texts, write short texts and hold comfortable conversations, be it when shopping, at work or in social contexts.

B2 (advanced language use): CEFR level B2 requires advanced German language skills. Examinations at this level focus on the ability to hold complex conversations, understand longer texts, produce written work and use the German language in professional contexts. Candidates should be able to exchange differentiated opinions and convey complex information.

C1 (advanced knowledge): CEFR level C1 corresponds to a very advanced language level. At this level, candidates are able to understand demanding texts, write academic papers, give professional presentations and hold complex discussions. The examinations at C1 level require in-depth language skills and the ability to master the German language at a high level, whether at work or at university.
