Goethe Certificate A1

Start Deutsch 1 is a German exam for adults. It certifies that candidates have acquired very basic language skills and corresponds to the first level (A1). You can sit this exam at all Goethe Institutes around the world. There are many benefits to this exam. For example, you can be granted a visa to join your husband or wife in Germany or you can apply for a position as an au pair in Germany. In general, it is a great way to prove that you mastered the first milestone in your German language skills.

Start by working with the practice material. This way you can familiarise yourself with what’s required and the format. Also, watch a video clip of a real oral exam.

Why working with a private tutor is very helpful?

Working with a private tutor will provide you with the ultimate boost to pass the exam. I am an experienced invigilator and examiner for all Goethe Institut exams from level A1-C1, so I know how to prepare you for the exam. We will be practicing the reading, listening, writing and especially the speaking with mock exams as well as my own material I specifically created to help A1 candidates.

In addition to that I can tell you what happens on the day of the exam. I know what the exam papers look like, what to expect during the writing and the listening exam and even which pens will be used. So you will be perfectly prepared for the exam day.
