A1 CEFR I can recognise familiar words and very basic phrases concerning myself, my family and immediate concrete surroundings when people speak slowly and clearly. I can understand familiar names, words and very simple sentences, for example on notices and posters or in catalogues. I can interact in a simple way provided the other person is prepared to repeat or rephrase things at a slower rate of speech and help me formulate what I’m trying to say. I can ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need or on very familiar topics. I can write simple phrases and isolated sentences. I can use simple phrases and sentences to describe where I live and people I know.
A1+ German Studies I am listening to simple dialogues and continue to use Themen Neu (1) listening texts. I am also starting to familiarise myself with short, elementary level, video clips. I can read registration forms, short texts, advertisements, menus, and tables (e.g. simplified newspaper articles of 200-300 words in length) and be assessed on that. I can conduct simple dialogues related to small talk and basic speech acts (eg. hotel room bookings, ordering food, or shopping). I can also introduce myself. Interactive settings practiced in the classroom environment form part of oral assessment. I can describe a room and its furniture, living and learning environment. I can negate or confirm statements. I can use simple and compound tense forms (preterite, perfect).I can write simple letters, emails, postcards, or shopping lists. I can state personal details, make simple descriptions and draft simple letters.
A1 German Studies I am introduced to brief listening exercises involving the alphabet, numbers, and simple texts. I also use a number of introductory listening texts made available online. I am exposed to selective dialogues and elementary short texts. I am starting to read brief dialogues composed in class by fellow students. These form part of the assessment regimen. I can introduce myself in simple sentences and describe simple states and processes. I am able to describe  myself, family, friends, and place of living, and make reference to every-day contexts. I can use present and future tense forms. I can introduce myself and fill out hotel registrations forms.
