Learning unit contents

As for the previous level, the four language learning skills are developed on the basis of everyday life dialogues so as to make progress in pronunciation, basic vocabulary and various grammar points. After listening to the dialogue and receiving explanations, students are invited to interact:

- Part of the written exercices are done in class so as to meet all comprehension needs. 

- speaking is trained through question-answer exchanges, simple conversations, role plays etc.

- listening comprehension is trained both in class and individually. 

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

By the end of the course, students will be able to understand essential communications and everyday messages relating to life and work; get by in most travel situations; speak about everyday or familar topics and describe their training, leisure, place of residence etc.
