Do you speak German? Can you prove it!

Some people study German for self-enrichment or want to know how to tell the time or talk on the phone in German. or to satisfy short term language requirements in high school, college, university or career goals. Others however, though, such as university or Gap students, aspiring teachers, translators or others with long term career goals, study the language as part of a formal training programme. For this latter group of students, formally proving competency in the language is a requirement and this is where the German Exams are of great value.
