What is B1 Level?

B1 level is the third out of the six levels of language proficiency in a European language, as framed by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). B1 is the basic independent level of language proficiency indicating the learner:

  • Can understand the main points when clear, standard language is used and the focus is on familiar topics associated with work, school, leisure time, etc.
  • Can deal with most situations typically encountered when travelling in the language region.
  • Can express himself/herself simply and coherently regarding familiar topics and areas of personal interest.
  • Can report on experiences and events, describe dreams, hopes and goals as well as make short statements to justify or explain his/her own views and plans.

What is the B1 Level Test Like?

There are two portions of the B1 exam:

  1. Written examination held in groups (Writing-60 minutes; Reading-65 minutes; Listening-40 minutes)
    • You will listen to short everyday conversations, personal phone messages or public announcements over a loudspeaker and do realistic exercises on them.
    • You will read texts such as brief notes, classified advertisements, signposts or posters and do exercises on them.
    • You will write a letter and express your opinion on the given topic.
  2. Oral examination held in a group (15 minutes)
    • You introduce yourself to the examiner and the examination partner. A relaxed question-and-answer session will follow and you will hold a conversation with your examination partner and present a topic, after which a question and answer round would follow.

How Do I Study for the Test?

To reach the B1 level without any prior German knowledge, we suggest you plan for at least 80 hours of studying. That may sounds like a lot, but it’s actually only about 1-1.5 months of self-studying for an entirely new language.

A good, affordable place to start is right off the Study Feeds website. We offer free practice materials to get you set for the level you are testing for.

When Do I Take the Test?

Once you feel that you meet the language requirements, you can enroll for an exam at any time. You can find all of the testing centers directly on the Goethe Institute’s website. Also, it is conducted quarterly in Delhi. Therefore, you can visit your nearest examination centre and update yourself. To know about your nearest language examination testing centre, you can check the website of the respective institution conducting the examination. In India, German language examinations are conducted by Goethe and TestDaF.
