Levels A1 and A2 correspond to basic users of the language, i.e. those able to communicate in everyday situations with commonly-used expressions and elementary vocabulary.
Skills at level A1
One of the questions you might ask yourself when you read this information is, what language competences characterise a person who can prove they have a level A1 in English? It is specified as the following:
- Understand and use very frequently-used everyday expressions as well as simple phrases to meet immediate needs
- Introduce themselves and others and ask/answer questions about personal details such as where they live, things they have and people they know
- Interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to cooperate.
