German Language Diploma (Deutsches Sprachdiplom - DSD)

The German Language School London prepares advanced students for the German Language Diploma (Deutsches Sprachdiplom - DSD) of the Federal Republic of Germany at several levels.

These exams are held at more than 1,100 schools in 70 countries, with about 70,000 participants every year worldwide. The DSD offers an official certificate with centralized exams. The exam consists of four parts: a written essay, reading and listening comprehension, as well as oral communication. Evaluation of the written part is conducted in Germany, but students take the exam in their home country.

The DSD is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (Gemeinsamer Europäischer Referenzrahmen für Sprachen):

  • Level A2: basic use of the language; offers advantages for job applications.
  • Level B1 (DSD I): independent use of the language; language proficiency certificate permits enrolment at a preparatory "Studienkolleg" in Germany.
  • Level B2/C1 (DSD II): competent use of the language; language proficiency certificate counts as linguistic qualification for university studies in Germany.

Our DSD program enhances our students' learning experience, and allows them to live up to their full potential in secondary school education. It also gives them an edge in today's highly competitive international job market. Employers in Canada and abroad acknowledge the DSD as proof of the holder's excellent knowledge of German.
