DSD 1 / German Language Diploma

 Preparation Course and Exam

What is the DSD I ?

  • The Deutsches Sprachdiplom (German Language Diploma), or short DSD, can be obtained as a certificate proving German language proficiency in two levels. We are offering the DSD I preparation course and exam.
  • The DSD I exams are designed to test the language proficiency level ranging from A2 – B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language and test the listening comprehension, reading comprehension, writing skills, and oral communication of the candidate.
  • The DSD-Level I (DSD-A2/B1) is considered to prove that the student has the level of ability in German that is required for entry to a college to study. The exams are prepared by the Zentralstelle für Auslandsschulwesen (ZfA) in Cologne and can be taken with the German Language School Saskatoon.

The preparation course
  • Students will be prepared by focusing on the structure of the exam such as oral communication, writing skills, listening comprehension and reading comprehension.
  • The course also emphasizes the expansion of vocabulary and grammar skills (sentence structure, adjective endings and more).
