DSD 1 - Das Deutsche Sprachdiplom / German Language Diploma

German Language Diploma I Preparation Course

What is the  DSD I ?

The Deutsches Sprachdiplom (German Language Diploma), or short DSD, can be obtained as a certificate proving German language proficiency in two levels. We are offering the DSD I  preparation course and exam.  

  • The DSD I  exams are designed to test the language  proficiency level ranging from A2 – B1 of the Common  European Framework of Reference for Language  and test  the listening comprehension, reading comprehension,  writing skills, and oral communication of the candidate.   
  • The DSD-Level I (DSD-A2/B1) is considered to prove that the student has the level of ability in German that is required for entry to a college to study. The exams are prepared by the Zentralstelle für Auslandsschulwesen (ZfA) in Cologne and can be taken with the German Language School Saskatoon.  


The preparation course 

  • Students will be prepared by focusing on the structure of the exam such as oral communication, writing skills, listening comprehension and reading comprehension. 
  • The course also emphasizes the expansion of vocabulary and grammar skills (sentence structure, adjective endings and more).
