Placement tests are primarily for students who have previous experiences learning German outside of a traditional classroom, or for those who may speak German at home with parents/relatives. In these cases, a German Online staff member may request that the student complete a written placement test, an informal oral assessment, or both.
German Online placement tests are available at the links below. Once complete, call our office at 1-800-423-6493 to discuss course placement. Students must complete both the German III/IV placement tests in order to be properly placed in a course.
