Learning outcome

After successful completion of the course students without previous knowledge (A1) can communicate in restricted language situations, read and use everyday expressions and very basic phrases, identify brief announcements and notifications - names, addresses and phone numbers. Within a professional context they can conduct short informal conversations, fill out forms, introduce and describe themselves and others - by giving and receiving personal information - as well as locations with simple words. Students can understand short and simple texts and compose informal and very simple texts e.g. business cards. After the successful completion of the course the students with previous knowledge (A2) can understand phrases and the most commonly used vocabulary when necessary, define short, simple messages and announcements and write simple personal letters. Students can communicate about simple and routine tasks, where a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar topics and activities is necessary. They can describe personal and professional activities using simple linguistic structures, and write short, simple notes and messages.
