In January 2000, the "threshold user" examination for German as a foreign language "Zertifikat Deutsch als Fremdsprache" (ZDaF), was replaced by a revised certificate, the "Zertifikat Deutsch" (ZD). This new examination was used at South African universities for the first time at the end of 2000. It was found that students coped equally well with the new examination although no significant curriculum changes were introduced during the year. Nevertheless, in order to reflect the objectives of the new examination, a revision of curricula and teaching methods is essential. This paper makes some suggestions as to how this can be achieved, also by referring to new teaching materials which are based on the objectives of the ZD and which prepare students for the new examination.
