"Leben in Deutschland" / Einbürgerungstest

12 posts in this topic

I also don't understand the difference between Leben-in-Deutschland-, Einbürgerungs- and Integrationstest/kurs.

 

Are they different levels? Is one better than the other?

 

The link posted in the previous post doesn't really answer any of these questions.

According to the wikipedia entry "Leben in Deutschland" is just a new name that was given to the test last year when some changes where made.

In any case you should ask in the state you live in which test you need to take. The naturalization process varies very slightly from state to state.

Thanks Snaug!

 

I also saw that apparently now Leben in Deutschland is the ONLY test left. http://www.brd-dritte-welt.de/pdf/2013-04-leben-in-de.pdf

 

which makes it even more confusing because on that earlier governmental link there seemed to still be 2 different tests (Einbürgerungstest and Test Leben in Deutschland) and as I look at different volkshochschulen and other institutes I also still see the possibility to register for both.

Curious about this topic, after looking up where and when to take said Einbürgerungstest, I did read the article cited above. This article explains that as of April 1, 2013, the test is now given as one test but to count as 'Leben in Deutschland' (LID) requires you to answer 15 out of 33 questions correctly and to count as the Einbürgerungstest 17 out of 33. When you sign up for the test at your local VHS I guess you tell them which test you want to be scored for. Whatever test result you want, LID or Einbürgerung, the 30 questions on your test come from 300 possible questions. 

 

Anyone taken the old Orientierungskurs Test pre-2013 and  found it 'counted' now as an Einbürgerungstest? Or does someone who passed the old test still need to take the LID/Einbürgerungstest?

No.  Yes.

 

I tried to blag the first but they would not have it :lol:.   (No harm in asking yourself, though, maybe your place differs)   We need the Einbürgerungstest.  Naturalisation is where we are at, not just living in  Germany.   Most people at a point of doing that will score far past 17 on that test so 15 vs 17 is not so relevant to worry about.

I sent an e-mail to the VHS about this topic, and received the reply below, which implies that, there are 2 different tests. I plan to go there when i have the time, but a clarification from experiences would also be nice.

I got myself registered for the Einbürgerungstest last week in VHS, and will take the test on 10.02. 

I see that there are many apps in the appstore in order to prepare for this test. Is there any broadly used "favorite" app for this purpose?

 

I know there are many websites (e.g.  https://www.einbuergerungstest-online.eu/http://oet.bamf.de/pls/oetut/f?p=514:1:4728971578507::::: etc. ) and also a PDF on the page of Bamf for the complete list of questions, but i would like to study from my phone while i commute.

I used the  https://www.einbuergerungstest-online.eu website and found it the best source.

 

I think I used also this app:   https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kulana.quiz.einbuergerungstestde

But at the time it was a little out of date, as it for example had the wrong German president!  But this now says 2020, so I assume it has been updated.

 

I found the website best, but the App is useful for commuting.

Can one really  just change the name of a joint bank account without signatures/agreement from both parties?  Asking for a friend.
