Goethe-Test PRO: Deutsch für den Beruf

Zertificat Deutsch für den Beruf (ZDfB) was replaced by Goethe-Test PRO: Deutsch für den Beruf.


The Goethe-Test PRO is a flexible online test. It uses advanced technology to evaluate personal language skills within 60 to 90 minutes. The Goethe-Test PRO can be taken either at one of Goethe test centres worldwide or on your company’s premises. The test employs the methods of the renowned Business Language Testing Service (BULATS) and is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). 


All participants begin the test at the same level. As the test progresses, the program chooses the next question based on your previous answer, allowing the level of difficulty to be automatically adjusted to your language skills. This eliminates the possibility of failure: The test results and a report on your level of language proficiency are available immediately after you have completed the test - and provide you, if required, with an ideal basis for decision-making, for example regarding the need for additional training measures.
