How well does my child have to speak German to be able to attend the GIB at the German School Doha?
Your child needs the B2 level, which means in detail:
- Listening comprehension
• I can understand in detail what I’m told in the standard language – even if there are disturbing noises in the surroundings.
• I can understand most documentary broadcasts on the radio that speak standard language and hear the speakers’ mood, etc.
• I can understand reports, live interviews, talk shows, TV plays and most movies on TV, as long as the standard language is spoken, not dialect.
- Reading comprehension
• I can quickly grasp the content and importance of news, articles, and reports on topics related to my interests or profession.
• I can also read and understand articles that go beyond my own area if I can occasionally look up the dictionary for control purposes.
• I can read reviews that deal with the content and judgment of cultural events (movies, theater, books, concerts), and summarize the main messages.
