  1. Open University German Language Certificate = B1 ?

      I've only spoken to her on the phone. She won't arrange an interview unless I bring along a language proficiency certificate.   Your replies are pretty much as I expected, and thanks everyone for them. But, worth a try I'd better get myself booked on a test then.  
  2. As many of you will know, application for German citizenship requires you to have at least a B1 or equivalent proficiency in German.   Before moving to Germany in 2008 I studied with the Open University and passed the  L130 (Auftakt: intermediate German) module and obtained a Certificate in German.   I contacted the OU to check if the level obtained was equivalent to B1, and they said it is and pointed me to the webpage for the course https://msds.open.ac.uk/students/study/undergraduate/course/l130.htm   The question is, will that be acceptable to a Beamtin at a provincial (Eberswalde, Brandenburg) citizenship bureau who doesn't speak English? I am thinking not, so how do I convince her that I have the required level of german proficiency already with the OU without having to sit the B1 test locally ( next available date June cost 120€ ) ? Any ideas folks?
