What is level A2.2 in German?

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR or CEF for short) is a standardised guide used to describe the performance of foreign language learners across Europe and beyond. At GermanMind, we naturally follow these guidelines in all our German classes and German courses.

How does it work?

Levels are divided into A1 for beginner, A2 for pre-intermediate, B1 for intermediate, B2 for advanced, C1 for advanced and C2 for master.

Like many other language schools, GermanMind divides these levels into two or more sections to accommodate students' time and budget planning (e.g. level A1 is divided into A1.1 and A1.2). This framework is one of the best for learning German for beginners.

What does it mean for you?

After completing level A2.2 you 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, work).

  • communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information about familiar and common matters.

  • describe in simple terms aspects of own background, immediate environment and things in the area of immediate needs.
