On the occasion of today’s student assembly, 33 secondary school students were awarded language diplomas in German and English.
More than 42,000 students at over 800 schools worldwide take the German Language Diploma (DSD) of the German Conference of Ministers of Education (KMK) every year. The DSD I (A2/B1) in grade 8 is considered proof of the German language skills required for admission to a preparatory college in Germany. At the same time, it is the first “big” exam in which one has to meet official requirements of the KMK. The students mastered this with flying colors: all 20 students of last school year’s grade 8 were presented with their diplomas.
Our head of the secondary school, Mr. Eggert, was also able to present our 13 eleventh graders of the past school year with a language diploma: Thanks to the good preparation by our teacher Mr. Broto, they received the coveted Cambridge AICE diplomas, which confirm the English proficiency required for entry to English-speaking universities. It is particularly noteworthy that three students were awarded the diploma at the highest level C2. Congratulations!
