Your abilities

You can communicate about very familiar topics (your family, work, country) using some of the basic English structures and vocabulary. The mistakes in your speech and writing can make your message difficult to understand. You may find it challenging to understand other speakers, or to understand written texts that include long sentences or unfamiliar words.

Your goals

Your goals working through this level are to:

  1. Improve your listening skills and pronunciation.
  2. Assimilate the basic structures and use them reflexively.
  3. Assimilate all the basic vocabulary and use it reflexively.
