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.
