The Goethe-Zertifikat B2 is a German exam for adults and it will be available to young people as well from 2019. It certifies that candidates have acquired advanced language skills and corresponds to the fourth level (B2) of the six-level scale of competence laid down in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Passing the exam demonstrates that you can ...

  • understand the main contents of complex texts on concrete and abstract topics, as well as technical discussions in your own area of specialization,
  • communicate so spontaneously and fluently that a normal conversation with native speakers is readily possible without a great deal of effort on either side,
  • express your opinion on current issues in a clear and detailed manner, explain your position on a current issue and state the benefits and drawbacks of various options.
