This course introduces students to the A1 level, but it aims at the completion of the A2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). The course includes reading, writing, listening, and speaking components that draw on new trends in educational technology and language teaching.   

At this level, students are typically expected to be able to:

  • describe in simple terms aspects of their background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need
  • understand the gist and/or relevant details of texts written in plain and clear language
  • express themselves in writing in a simple way but clearly
