Why Learn German

LEVEL A1

What is the A1 Level Test Like?

There are two portions of the A1 exam:

1. Written examination held in groups (65 minutes) (Listening, Reading & Writing)

  • You will listen to short everyday conversations, personal phone messages or public announcements over a loudspeaker and do realistic exercises on them.
  • You will read texts such as brief notes, classified advertisements, signposts or posters and do exercises on them.
  • You will fill in typical simple forms and write a short and basic personal letter about an everyday situation, be it formal or informal.

2. Oral examination held in a group (15 minutes)

  • You introduce yourself to the group. A relaxed question-and-answer session will follow and you will ask someone in the group for some everyday items.

How Do I Study for the Test?

To reach the A1 level without any prior German knowledge, we suggest you plan for at least 80 hours of studying. That may sounds like a lot, but it’s actually only about 1-2 months of preparation for an entirely new language.

A good, affordable place to start is right off the Study Feeds website. We offer free practice materials to get you set for the level you are testing for.

When Do I Take the Test?

Once you feel that you meet the language requirements, you can enroll for an exam at any time. You can find all of the testing centers directly on the Goethe Institute’s website. Also, it is conducted quarterly in Delhi. Therefore, you can visit your nearest examination centre and update yourself.
