Profile deutsch was developed on the initiative of the Council of Europe in trinational cooperation between Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Profile deutsch can be used as an open and highly flexible system when planning, giving and evaluating lessons in German as a Foreign Language / German as a Second Language. Profile deutsch applies the standards set by the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages".

Profile deutsch describes the different levels of the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages" from A1 to C2 and hence makes language competence measurable.

Profile deutsch is a reference book, a check-list or a treasure trove and can be adjusted according to regional, professional or other needs.
