Which Certificate for which Purpose?
You will get a GLS German language certificate after having finished your course, documenting your level of German on the European Framework scale A1 - C2. The GLS certificate is free of charge, unlike TestDaF or Goethe certificates. Many employers and institutions in Berlin accept a GLS B2 certificate as proof of sufficient German, but it has no worldwide recognition. If you want that, we recommend a Goethe certificate or TestDaF.
