Course levels

Level A1: Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.


Learning content: You will learn how to introduce yourself, and how to provide and request personal information (origin, nationality, where you live and work, address and phone number). You will acquire a basic vocabulary covering home, family, clothing, food, shopping, weights and measures, and learn how to ask and answer questions about time.

Moving on from these basics, you will learn the times of day, days of the week, months and seasons, as well as how to describe the weather. You will describe your leisure activities and daily routine. You will learn how to ask for basic information at the train station or airport desk, and articulate simple requirements.

The final part of the course will teach you to make yourself understood while travelling, and to give and request directions. You will learn how to express your opinions, how to speak about actions and events in the past, and how to talk about plans, predictions and intentions.
