The DSD at the DSD
As most of you are aware the Deutsche Schule Durban organised the exams for the ‘Deutsche Sprachdiplom I’ (DSD I) for the first time last year. We are very proud to announce that all our learners passed the exam on the B1 level!
Last Monday we had a small ceremony to hand out the certificates and to express our admiration for the effort put into the German classes by our learners and their parents. Every Monday evening High School students (mostly DSD alumni) gather at the DSD to continue German SAL as an extra subject up to matric.
Starting from this year, the grade 8 learners will always write the exams for the DSD I and the grade 11s will write the exams for the DSD II. The ‘Deutsche Sprachdiplom’ (or German Language Certificate) is an official proof of German language proficiency, is organised and recognised by the Federal Republic of Germany and is extremely valuable for our learners for future studies, scholarship and job applications in a German speaking country as well as in South Africa.
