A1 Test - what is this?
A1 Test is the name for the language examination to obtain the certificate "Start German 1" - or as we say in German: "Start Deutsch 1".
The 2nd Amendment Act on the Immigration Act became effective on 28.08.2007.
A1 certificates are now mandatory in most cases as proof of basic German language skills. This allows you to obtain a visa to stay in Germany exceeding 90 days.
It is your choice where you take the language course. While the examinations are conducted by the Goethe-Institut in Bangkok, it is not mandatory that you study at the Goethe-Institut.
The examination consists of four parts:
|Listening||- short simple statements and questions
- public announcments and short conversations
|Reading||- information from short written messages
- public signs and classified ads
|Writing||- fill in forms with respect to personal information
- brief personal messages
|Speaking||- introduce yourself and answer simple questions about a person
- formulate everyday common pleas and requests and respond to them
All aspects will be explained and practiced thoroughly.
You will be taught language and examination-specific skills that will make it as easy as possible for you to pass the test.
