What is A2 English level?

The A2 proficiency level (Elementary English) is the second from six reference levels defined by CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Compared to the alternative English language assessment frameworks, it is similar to Cambridge KEY (KET) certificate, CLB/CELPIP 4 or Cambridge English: Flyers (YLE Flyers).

The CEFR Common Reference levels are fully defined in a structured set of illustrative ‘can-do’ descriptors for many different categories. The main descriptors for A2 level include also these ‘can-do’ statements:

Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).

Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters.

Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
