Goethe-Zertifikat & TestDaF

These courses are specifically designed to prepare you for the internationally recognized Goethe-Zertifikat and TestDaF exams. You will use practice exercises to get to know the various sections of the written and oral exam and will become familiar with specific exam techniques. 

By working through a sample test in a small group, you will get to know the ins and outs of the test format, while simulating various exam situations and honing the specific skills needed to excel on the exam in all four sections: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
