Institution: Saga National University
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition
Subject Language: German
Subject Language Family: Germanic
Abstract: This paper investigates why TestDaF - the officially certified and recognized university entrance exam proofing sufficient knowledge of the German language which is comparable to TOEFL - is only insignificantly made use of by Japanese students intending to take up a study at universities in German speaking countries. On the other hand, students in Korea -- their neighbouring country across the sea -- seem to be much more enthusiastic about TestDaF although Japan outnumbers Korea significantly in terms of students and universities.
