What is the „Deutsch-Test für Zuwanderer (DTZ)“?

You need the German Test for Immigrants as proof of your language skills for citizenship application in Germany. Integration courses conclude with this examination.

The dual-level examination simultaneously assesses general language skills at two competency levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): the dual level A2/B1.

The examination provides you with a differentiated evaluation of your language proficiency in the skills of reading, listening, writing, and speaking. You will find out precisely which areas correspond to level A2 or B1.

The examination consists of a written and an oral part. The written examination lasts for 100 minutes. The oral examination is usually conducted immediately after the written examination, without any preparation time.
