Digital Goethe-Zertifikat B2

B2 Goethe Certificate Becomes Digital

From February 2019, the Goethe-Institut has been offering the first language exam in digital format at several institutes.

This is because digital German exams are:

  • user-friendly thanks to smarter features which, for example, display pending tasks and the remaining exam time, and can change the font size
  • flexible in their implementation
  • resource-efficient and sustainable
The digital exams for the level B2 are carried out in the exam centre on laptops with a German keyboard provided by the institute. On the laptops, exam participants complete the modules reading, writing and listening (with headphones). The speaking module will continue to be examined by the experienced examiners of the Goethe-Institut.
