DSD is an abbreviation of Deutsches Sprachdiplom. At European School Copenhagen, we offer both the DSD I and DSD II exams. In the coming school year 2023/24, we will start with DSD I. From the school year 2024/25, we will be offering both the DSD I and DSD II exams.
Both DSD exams are a proof of language level recognised by universities and companies. The language level of DSD I is B1 according to the CEFR* scale and for DSD II it is B2 or C1.
The examination has two parts:
- First part:
Reading comprehension, listening comprehension, and written communication (same day for all participating schools)
- Second part:
Oral communiation (within a given time frame)
The examinations are free of charge.
