¿Qué son los exámenes ÖSD?
The ÖSD fosters the concept of German being a pluricentric language, reflecting the variety of the German language in its exams. Thus, the standard varieties of the German-speaking countries Austria, Switzerland and Germany are equally treated and represented in all exams. Reading and listening tasks use texts originating from these countries.
Today, more than 100,000 candidates from around the world take an ÖSD exam every year, at one of about 400 licensed centres. In 1998, the ÖSD was awarded the “European Label for Innovative Projects in Language Teaching and Learning” by the European Commission.
