French level 2

Course information

To take the French level 2 course, you need to have a basic knowledge of French. For example, you can introduce yourself and talk about your living environment and your family. You are also able to fill in forms and questionnaires about yourself.

During the course, you will develop the language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in French. Grammar and vocabulary are also part of the course.

After completing French level 2, you will be able to give your opinion in simple sentences, talk about your preferences, habits and hobbies, invite someone to/for something and order something in a restaurant. You are able to read simple texts about daily life, leisure time, eating and activities, for example in advertisements or promotions. You can write a short text about what you do in your leisure time.

The grammar you learn during this course includes the present tense of the verbs sortir (to leave), dormir (to sleep), prendre (to take), faire (to make/do), jouer (to play) and manger (to eat). In addition to this, you learn – among other things – to make sentences with pour (to/for) and parce que (because).

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to French level 3.
