Targeted preparation for the DSH exam

You already have German language skills, but are rather inexperienced and insecure in practice? You must pass the DSH exam, however, in order to be accepted at a university in order to study in Germany? IQ helps you to prepare for the DSH exam in an optimal manner.

The DSH examination is carried out by universities themselves and on specified dates. Written and oral German skills are tested within a period of 3 to 4 hours. The procedure for the written DSH exam is divided into four sections: listening and reading comprehension, grammar and composing texts. In the oral part of the test a given topic must be debated and discussed. 

In IQ's preparatory courses for the DSH test exam-style situations are specifically practised. You will therefore already get a sense of what is expected from you in the DSH examination, and you can walk confidently to the test. In addition to practical exercises, our instructors also address your personal strengths and weaknesses individually. Since the number of participants for our courses is limited to a maximum of eight people, each participant can be assessed individually. Thus, the learning content for the group can be tailor-made. The teaching materials for the preparing of you DSH examination are provided by us, so you do not have to worry about purchasing textbooks or workbooks.

Your existing knowledge of German is constantly refreshed and further developed as the course moves along. You expand your vocabulary little by little and become more familiar with German grammar. Your spelling and expressiveness is also encouraged for the DSH examination. The course prepares you optimally for both later student life at the university as well as the private sphere. Discussions with professors, design and delivery of presentations as part of a lecture or just planning evenings spent together with your fellow students will no longer be a problem for you on completion of the preparatory course for the DSH test.
