The Gothe Institute language exam is a German exam for teenagers and adults. This exam confirms language proficiency at an advanced level and is equivalent to a fourth level (B2) on the six-level European Union Agreement Competency Level competency scale (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2).
One of the language requirements for PPDS in Germany is to pass Goethe-Z Certified B2. However there are some states in Germany / Bundeslaender that need to pass the Goethe-Z Certified C1. So doctors are advised to attend language schools at least up to C1. From level A1 to level B2, it takes approximately 1 year at the Goethe Institute in Indonesia with a superintensive program from Monday to Friday at 08.00-16.00.
Learning German from level A1 to B2 directly in Germany is limited to about 1 to 1.5 years and this will create residence permit problems because German language school permits are limited. If the residence permit expires, the doctor must return to his country and start registering again from Indonesia. Therefore, the requirement of the PPDS-Germany Medical Program is to pass Goethe-Z Certified B2
