At A2 level, you are capable of grasping sentences and recurrent phrases associated with areas of relevance (e.g. essential personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). You can engage in basic and familiar tasks that necessitate a direct and uncomplicated exchange of information. You can describe in simple terms details regarding your background, your close environment, and matters with relevance to your immediate needs.
Additionally, you have the ability to engage in social interaction (e.g., greetings and farewells, providing introductions, expressing gratitude). In addition to being able to articulate your emotions in simple terms, as well as giving thanks, you can make requests (e.g. asking to borrow something), extend offers and agree or decline if someone requests a favour from you.
Despite your capacity to converse momentarily, it is unlikely that you can maintain longer conversations due to a lack of understanding. Nonetheless, if the other party is willing to put forth effort, your understanding may strengthen.
As an pre-intermediate communicator, you can extend invitations, proposals and apologies while expressing likes and dislikes with comparative language. Additionally, you can debate activities to undertake during the evening or weekend and make plans to get together. Finally, you can communicate with clarity and simplicity to request and offer things, collect information, and speak about subsequent plans.
