The TestDaF is an advanced-level language exam provided by the TestDaF Institute. The TestDaF certificate acts as evidence of the language skills needed to gain admission to almost any subject and degree course at universities and institutions of higher education in Germany.

Our TestDaF preparation training will help you determine the steps you need to take in order to achieve the best possible results in the exam. You will gain an insight into the objectives and contents of the TestDaF examination including vocabulary and structures for relevant topics as well as the four tested language skills. As the Goethe-Institut conducts the Digital TestDaF, our trainer will prepare you for the technical side of the exam format using a laptop instead of the paper-based exam.
