The Goethe-Zertifikat B2 is a German exam for young people and adults. 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.
PARTIAL REPETITION B2
Until August 2019, those who have taken the B2 exam have the option of repeating the section that they did not pass. This means that if you did not pass the written section (Reading, Listening, and Writing) or the oral section, you have a one-time option to repeat the section that you did not pass at the same exam site within one year.
The fee for repeating the section that you did not pass: 130,000 KRW
