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,
