Placement Test - How much German do you already know?

Dear Learner!

This page is leading to the online placement tests for our courses. They are based on the language course materials we are using for our classes. You can make yourself familiar with our levels from A1 to C1 here.




The following tests are related to the classroom material 'Netzwerk' by Klett Verlag, which we are using on the levels A1 to B1. They let you identify your German language level.

Please click on the appropriate placement test at your assumed level as described by the Common European Framework (CEF):


Netzwerk A1, A2 and B1 levels


You are a  beginner (i.e. you have very little knowledge of German)?*
Please use the link to the placement test A1:

Button takes you to the A1 test

You have learnt a little already, you have finished the A1 level in your home country or at a language school, or you have received a telc A1 certificate?*
Then  go to the link to the placement test A2:
Button takes you to the A2 test
You are confident that you have already reached the level A2?*
Well, then try the next test right away, and go to the link to the placement test B1:
Button takes you to the B1 test

*N.B.: Even if you can already understand, speak, read and write some German, you may of course still do all the tests, starting with A1. It might even be fun!




These two tests are based on the classrooom material 'Aspekte neu' by Klett Verlag at upper intermediate and advanced levels.


Aspekte neu B2 and C1 levels


You have done courses ending with B1 or have learnt so much that you can already 'get around' in Germany, with mistakes here and there?* Go to the B2 test here: Button takes you to the B2 test
You have done a B2 class successfully or even already acquired the B2 certificate, or you feel pretty confident in speaking, reading, writing and listening in German, but need some 'fine tuning' to take you to the C1 level?* Try this test: Button takes you to the C1 test

*N.B.: We suggest you do both tests to receive a proper result.

At the end of the tests you will receive a recommendation for entering a language course at a particular level.  

Important: Please make sure you enter TANDEM's email-address (info(at) at the end of the test, so that we can see your result!

Of course, we will use your name and email address for the sole purpose of seeing your test result and proposing a course at the starting level you have reached. We will never pass your personal data on to third parties or use them for any marketing purpose.

Have a good time with the test!
