“More than 20,000 students take the national German exam every year. We are very proud of our students who now have the opportunity to pursue tuition-free post-secondary education at universities and technical schools in Germany. We applaud their hard work and continued commitment to learning German, ”said Michaela Greco, Director of Holmdel.

Princeton Principal Dorothea Drew added: “The past year has been particularly difficult for students who have spent even more time online and dedicated time to an extra class outside of their regular school hours; we congratulate them for persevering and for taking on these unique learning challenges.

What are the exams and rewards for German students?

The German language school is a partner school with the Federal Republic of Germany Agency for German Schools Abroad (ZfA), (http://www.pasch-net.de/deindex.htm), which tests students at six proficiency levels to earn the German language degree. The ZfA supports German language schools around the world with professional development, teaching and classroom materials, as well as funding. Students who demonstrate higher levels of understanding and communication are eligible to study at universities and technical schools in German-speaking countries of Europe. The National German Exam, administered to more than 20,000 high school students annually by the American Association of German Teachers (AATG), recognizes oral and written skills in three levels of German. The test includes comprehension, reading and conversational skills, as well as an applied structure of grammar and idioms in context. The winners are:
