Über den Kurs

Level A1 for Spanish according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) has the following main features:

  • Basic vocabulary related to personal information (name, age, family, work, etc), shopping, place of residence, environment. Around 300-500 words.

  • Very basic grammar: present indicative (to be, to have, to live, etc), gender and number (masculine/feminine, singular/plural), personal pronouns, expressions of quantity (numbers, a lot/little, etc).

  • Very basic listening and reading comprehension: instructions, directions, personal information, numbers, prices. Very short and simple texts.

  • Speaking: introducing oneself, greeting, saying name, age, where one lives, describing basic things (colour, size), ordering in shops/restaurants. Short, isolated sentences.

  • Oral interaction: greetings, introductions, basic questions and answers about personal information and immediate needs.

  • Written expression: filling in a simple form with personal details, numbers and dates. Simple sentences.

This is a very basic level focusing on everyday tasks and meeting immediate communication needs. The student has a very limited repertoire and control of the language.
