Zertifikat B1 (ZB1)

The ÖSD and Goethe Institut are introducing the new exam "Zertifikat B1" (abbreviation: ZB1) in 2013. This exam is in modular form and the four parts - reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing and speaking skills - can be either offered and done independently or in their entirety, as before.

Details and sample exam can be found here.

Important: The existing "B1 Zertifikat Deutsch" will continue to be offered as a separate exam in Austria for migrants to Austria as the ZDÖ (Zertifikat Deutsch Österreich).
