TestDaF preparation online:

We currently offer online courses in TestDaF preparation. The courses last 4 weeks and comprise a total of about 20 teaching units per week. You will get to know the exam format and learn strategies to effectively handle the different subtests. You work independently with a course book and the materials we provide on the learning platform Moodle, you take part in online lessons (via zoom) and receive feedback on your performance. Plan on about 4-5 hours of work per day. During the course you have the opportunity to take part in a model test and receive feedback on this.

The next course dates 2022:
19.01. - 15.02.22 (preparation for the digital examination),
23.02. - 22.03.22 (preparation for the paper-based examination),
