Beginner

Can understand a few everyday expressions of simple functions in known situations, and can produce some single words and set phrases in response, or can make requests using, for example, a single word & "please" (e.g. "Salt, please").

Little structural grasp, except in reading, where (s)he can recognise the existence of a few basic structural contrasts (e.g. singular/plural or continuous v. simple) even if not always certain exactly what they mean.

Can substitute items in one or two structural patterns in writing, but not manipulate the patterns any further.
