    We are currently trying to assess amongst Adelaide's German language students and teachers the need for local official German language examinations, as offered by the 'Goethe-Zertifikate' A1, A2, B1 and B2 (and possibly even C1 and C2) within the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

    Given that Adelaide is one of only a very few cities in Australia where these examinations are not currently offered, we - in collaboration with the Goethe Institut Melbourne - are trying to investigate whether there is enough interest to warrant introducing this facility to South Australia from as early as 2018.

    In order to help us work out the local need, we would very much appreciate if you could kindly indicate (by a simple reply email) whether or not you would be interested in taking any of these examinations over the course of the next three years - and if so, at which level.

    Please note that all 'Goethe-Zertifikate' incur an examination fee depending on the level, currently ranging from about $100 (A1) to about $200 (B2).

    We really appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you.
