Preparation for German language exams and tests like TestDAF, Goethe Zertifikat, OnSET / OnDAF

Many people want to work, live, to study in Germany, or possibly have a work opportunity that requires one to speak German fluently. In order to apply for a Visa, or the permission to study at a university, or for work, you need to prove your German language skills.
The 3 most common and widely accepted language exams are the tests of the Goethe Institute (Goethe Zertifikat A1-C2), the TestDAF (level B2-C1) whose purpose is to evaluate your ability to participate in a university setting, or the online test OnSET / OnDAF (level A2 to C1).
Every test is different and to pass the language tests well, a good and specific preparation is necessary. Michael has helped many students to fulfill their dreams, by preparing them for the tests and successfully passing them.

How is the test preparation realized?

First of all Michael is interviewing the student to ask all the important question, specifically about your motivation to take the test. The second step is to evaluate your current language skills.
The 3rd step is to increase your language ability to the desired or needed level and fluency of the German language. The 4th and final is to do the specific test preparations, which varies highly depending on which test you want to take. For most tests without this specific preparation you’ll most-likely fail. Especially the TestDAF needs systematic preparation. Being well prepared and knowing exactly how the tests work is crucial to pass them. Michael is going to explain all the details to you.
