He/She can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. He/she can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
Pre intermediate - A2:
By the end of this level, the student will be able to understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). He/she can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. He/she can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
By the end of this level, the student will be able to understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. He/she can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken.

Upper Intermediate- B2:
By the end of this level, the student will be able to understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. He/she can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. He/she can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
By the end of this level, the student will be able to understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning.

He/she can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. He/she can express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in the most complex situations.
