"Every new language is like an open window that shows a new view of the world and expands your attitude towards life." Frank Harris

Test your language skills

You have prior knowledge of a language but you are not sure about your current level? Use a self-test for a quick assessment of your proficiency:

  • onSET is an online test that measures your general language skills in German or English.
  • You will find further selected self-test tools HERE.

Prove your language proficiency

Often, proof of language proficiency is required to study at a German or at an international university:

To prove your German language skills, you can take the internationally recognised TestDaF (Test of German as a Foreign Language) at LUBS.
