At A2 level students have a good comprehension of set sentences and common everyday expressions connected to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. basic personal and family details, shopping, professional and leisure activities).

They can communicate in simple and routine situations where a simple and direct exchange of information based on familiar and routine matters is required. Students will begin to function in basic social situations in which they will be able to use simple and basic common polite forms of greeting and address, greeting people and asking how they are and reacting to their news. They will have the tools to deal with situations of relatively basic and short social interaction such as asking and responding to questions about their professional and leisure activities, in addition to making plans, making and accepting offers and accepting and refusing invitations. They will also be able to manage basic interaction in situations in shops, post offices, banks and similar services, requesting information, booking tickets and following instructions. Finally, students will be able to give and follow simple directions.
