German SAT Subject Test

The SAT Subject Tests in German evaluate skills in German grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. A student with a strong background in the language, including at least two or three years of formal study in high school, might consider taking a German Subject Test.

Our German Subject Test Program

We take an educational approach to the German Subject Tests by emphasizing grammatical rules and establishing a strong breadth of vocabulary and idiomatic expression. Our tutors tailor each program to student’s background in German, strengths, and weaknesses.

In one-on-one tutoring sessions and through homework, students learn vocabulary, grammatical rules, and concrete approaches to reading comprehension. Timed, full-length practice tests provide opportunities for students to exercise this knowledge and these problem-solving skills.

Contact us to speak with a program consultant and schedule a diagnostic German Subject Test. If you are unsure about whether to take the German Subject Test with or without the listening component, we will help you make a decision based on diagnostic test scores, coursework, and time each student has spent in a German-speaking environment.
