The Goethe-Test Pro – Clarity In Only 60 Minutes

Whether for your own professional career or the competitiveness of the entire company: Success is not just a matter of chance. Success is based on trust. And trust is engendered when everyone speaks the same language. The question is therefore: How good is your German? What language skills do your current or future employees possess?

Goethe-Test PRO: German for professionals provides an answer to this question. Our computer-based German test evaluates listening and reading competence quickly and reliably in the workplace.

Tailored and informative

The Goethe-Test PRO uses advanced technology to evaluate personal language skills within 60 to 90 minutes. All participants begin the test at the same level. As the test progresses, the program chooses the next question based on your previous answer, allowing the level of difficulty to be automatically adjusted to your language skills. This eliminates the possibility of failure: The test results and a report on your level of language proficiency are available immediately after you have completed the test - and provide you, if required, with an ideal basis for decision-making, for example regarding the need for additional training measures.

The Goethe-Test PRO is a flexible online test. It can be taken either at one of our test centres worldwide or on your company’s premises. The test employs the methods of the renowned Business Language Testing Service (BULATS) and is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
