TestDaF - Test German as a Foreign Language

TestDaF stands for Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache (Test of German as a Foreign Language) and is a standardised language proficiency test designed for non-native speakers of German who wish to study or work in a German-speaking environment. The test aims to assess individuals' language skills at various levels and is widely recognised in German-speaking countries.

Key Aspects of the TestDaF


The main purpose of the TestDaF is to assess the German language proficiency of non-native speakers. It is often a requirement for admission to German universities and colleges.


The test consists of four sections: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. Each section assesses different language competencies.


  • Listening: Measures the ability to understand spoken German in various contexts such as lectures and conversations.
  • Reading: Tests the understanding of written German, including texts from academic and everyday contexts.
  • Writing: Requires test-takers to express themselves in writing, often in the form of essays or reports.
  • Speaking: Evaluates the ability to communicate verbally in German through discussions and presentations.


TestDaF is scored on a three-level scale: TDN 3 (TestDaF Level 3) to TDN 5 (TestDaF Level 5). Each section is scored individually, and the final result is an average of the scores.
