Placement Test: German as a Foreign Language
You would like to take a German course at our centre, but are unsure which one you should choose? In that case, the following tips might help you!
Go to the following internet address:

There, you will find three tests for different levels: A1, A2, and B1. These tests are based on the MENSCHEN learning materials published by Hueber, which are used in the German courses at our centre.

Each test consists of 48 questions or tasks. You need not answer ALL questions (if you are unsure of the answer, simply continue to the next question!) and you can close the test before completely finishing it. However, it is of course best to complete as many tasks as possible.

Take the Test 1 (click on "weiter zum Test 1: Menschen A1") or, if you find this one too easy, try Test 2 or 3 (click on "weiter").

The test result, beginning “Menschen…” indicates that the following course is right for you >...

Menschen A1.2, Lektion 13 > Grundstufe II
Menschen A2.1, Lektion 1 > Grundstufe II
Menschen A2.2, Lektion 13 > Mittelstufe I
Menschen B1.1, Lektion 1 > Mittelstufe II
Menschen B1.2, Lektion 13 > Mittelstufe II

If you are still uncertain which course you should choose, send your test results to Mr. Stéphane Gragnic (
He will provide you with feedback and, if necessary, an appointment for a personal meeting.
