Can understand many simple expressions of everyday basic functions in familiar situations and sometimes grasp what the basic topic of a conversation in English is.

Can produce understandable questions and answers involving information above basic (e.g. Not only 'What is your name?' but 'What does your father do?') even if structures often go wrong and words are not known.

In reading can follow very simplified stories or information, and recognise the meanings of a number of structural contrasts (e.g. 'the'/'a' or 'I go'/'I'm going').

Can write a few simple but connected sentences on a given topic with some awareness of the forms required, even if not always using them correctly.
