Certificat initial de connaissance de la langue française - niveau 2 (A2)
The second part of this advanced beginners program will continue from the end of August, when Florence comes back from her holidays. Students will reach A2 level by the end of this program, the level which is necessary for the 10 years resident card.
The price of 405 euros is for people who will be paid by their company. For people who are paying by themselves, the discounted program fees will be 330 euros.
As per the guidelines of CEFRL (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) these are the things we are supposed to be able to do once we are at the A2 level.
Listening: I can understand phrases and the highest frequency vocabulary related to areas of most immediate personal relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local area, employment). I can catch the main point in short, clear, simple messages and announcements.
Reading: I can read very short, simple texts. I can find specific, predictable information in simple everyday material such as advertisements, prospectuses, menus and timetables and I can understand short simple personal letters.
Spoken interaction: I can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar topics and activities. I can handle very short social exchanges, even though I can't usually understand enough to keep the conversation going myself.
Spoken production: I can use a series of phrases and sentences to describe in simple terms my family and other people, living conditions, my educational background and my present or most recent job.
Writing: I can write short, simple notes and messages relating to matters in areas of immediate needs. I can write a very simple personal letter, for example thanking someone for something.
