The proctors were patient and clear in their instructions. They executed the several parts of the exam on time, efficiently. I'm glad I took the test, and I look forward to eventually taking the B1 exam.
The listening part of the exam was much more difficult than the other parts. The conversations were spoken quite quickly, faster than I normally hear on news broadcasts such as Deutsche Welle and Tagesschau. I need to improve my listening skills, but it seemed like maybe the listening portion was maybe a bit out of scale difficulty-wise with the other parts.

It was the perfect environment to take my Goethe exam. I had a very positive experience.

They were very careful and communicative. Everything was clear, for example, when my partner did not understand a word, they let me know that I could give more info in another question.
The security of my purse, coat and key. I am older, with experiences in my past where anything that is not secure is a worry, no matter who it is. I had no real reason to distrust anybody; they were all quite correct and forthcoming.

It was engaging and fun to just try communicating in German.
The time wasn't reflective of the eventual start time.
