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). You will acquire a basic vocabulary covering home, family, transport, 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 speak about your leisure activities, and how to ask for what you want and reply to questions when shopping or in a restaurant. The last part of the course will teach you to express yourself while travelling, in hotels, on the phone and during a visit to the doctor, and to say what you require, also in response to questions or demands. You will learn to speak about actions and events in the past, and to form sentences with "when" and "because". In the end, you will be able to describe your daily routine and give a simple account of your abilities, duties, wishes and preferences.
