DSD I Oral Exams

This week the German Department started with the annual, exciting, full-day event of the DSD I oral exams (A2/B1 CEFR). For the fourth year in a row, students who qualified for the 2021 official language diploma of the German Education Authorities and the Foreign Office (Germany) showed the certified examiners that their speaking skills are a B1 level or above.
The oral exam is divided into two parts and takes about 15 minutes in total. After several minutes of guided conversation, the students present a topic of their choosing that has been previously agreed upon with their examiner in January. Subsequently, students show their knowledge of the topic by answering questions on the presented topic.


Congratulations! All participants passed the oral exam. We are proud of your accomplishments.
We are looking forward to receiving the results of the listening and reading comprehension, as well as the writing task from Germany. They are usually released in June.
