Preparation for the Goethe-Zertifikat B2 and C1

We offer preparation examinations administered by the Goethe Institute, examinations which are known world-wide and highly valued in professional life.
These examinations from the Goethe Institute test practical skills at different levels and require a solid knowledge of everyday German, both oral and written.

They consist of a written paper (listening, reading, writing, including grammatical structures and vocabulary) and an oral exam.
