Hi all,

As many PMP applicants, I am not a native English speaker. I feel fairly confident in using English, and I have taken all training (books, PrepCast etc.) in English. However, for the exam, I am asking myself if I should "order" the German language aid (I am a Swiss native). My concern is that it will increase the time it takes to answer the questions (e.g. because of scrolling), or the second language (which is displayed first, as I learnt) could even distract me.

Question to those who have used the language aid on the exam: what is your experience? Was the language aid beneficial, or did it make you use more time per question or even distract you?

Hi Christian i am a German und also not a native english speaker.
I passed the exam on oct 18th 2017 .
I also practiced all the mock exams with english but decided for german language aid.
During the exam it does not distract... you will read the english question first...and only if your not sure in some will look up the german translation anyway... in my exam english and german was on one page , and it was not distracting..
So I would definitely recommend to book the german language aid.
best regards and good luck for the exam...
