DSH exam components - oral and written parts

DSH exam components: The DSH examination consists of two parts, an oral and a written examination. The written exam lasts about four hours and can be divided into three parts: Listening comprehension, reading comprehension and text production. Our preparation courses for all DSH examination parts take place three weeks before the DSH exam in Duisburg - Essen and are aimed at learning for experienced students.

Listening and reading comprehension

In listening comprehension, students should show that they can follow lectures and understand seminars. An integral part of listening comprehension is taking notes and answering questions relating to what has been heard. Summary The content is more important than the language. In reading comprehension, students demonstrate their ability to understand and edit scientific texts. They work on questions about the text, its structure and outline. They also look for suitable headings for text sections. The content is more important than the language.

In another part of reading comprehension, students perform grammatical transformations, this part is called scientific linguistic structures. Language is more important than content.

Text production and The DSH oral exam

In text production, students write their own text on a topic from science or study. A graphic or a diagram, sometimes also a quotation, is given. Using this information, the students describe the facts in their text. Then they evaluate, argue, compare and comment on it. Here the language is more important than the content.

The oral exam lasts about 40 minutes, 20 minutes of which belong to the preparation time. At the beginning of the exam you will receive a diagram, a diagram or a short text and can prepare yourself in silence.

In the first five minutes of the interview, you will briefly describe this task and explain what you have understood from the text. This is followed by an interview or further questions from the individual examiners. A large role in the oral examination plays above all the linguistic correctness, the vocabulary, the phrasing means as well as the pronunciation, but also the discussion behavior, thus the communication with the examiners and the compensation strategies with problems.
