What level of German is recommended? How can I find out my language level?

It is usually the employer that decides whether or not your German skills are adequate for the position advertised. Only for very few jobs must a certain language level be certified. In general, a minimum level of B2 is advisable for work. This level suggests that you are able to use German independently in everyday life as well as at your job.

Find out your personal language level with the aid of language tests (placement tests) offered at various institutions (adult education centres, language schools).
Your language level can also be determined online:
