The fide test is designed to demonstrate your proficiency in German. The test is recognised by the federal government and cantons and is made up of two parts:
The results are used to classify your language skills as level A1, A2 or B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Written and oral skills are shown separately.
You can register for the complete fide test or just for one part.
You must present a valid ID on the day of the exam. You will receive your result and your «language passport» by post directly from the fide office within four weeks.
