The Instituto Cervantes Bremen offers placement tests the whole year round.

When your entry level is A1 or higher, please get in touch with us to arrange a placement test:

It is now possible to do the placement test online and students are not required to pay the test fee. Please send an email to Petra Pape at petra.pape(at) or Ulrike von Seggern at ulrike.vonseggern(at) or contact them by phone at 0421 - 34039-0. We will send you a link which you can use to complete the first step – the written test. We will then contact you by email or phone to arrange an appointment for the second step– the oral test. This will take the form of a 10-15 minute discussion via Zoom. The coronavirus restrictions mean that it is still imperative that you make an appointment by email or phone - 0421 - 34039-0.

The oral tests are usually held on Mondays to Thursdays from 15:00 - 17:00 and also by appointment.

In the summer months of July/August please likewise arrange an appointment by phone at 0421-34039-0. The Instituto Cervantes is closed between Christmas and New Year.
