    What does level A2 mean?

    1. admin

      Dear Lynn,

      Level A2 means the candidate can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information. They can have basic conversations, but are not yet fully independent or spontaneous in the conversations. If you are interested in classes, and wish to find out more about your level, or more accurately gauge your level, please contact our Course Coordinator on

      Kind regards,

    It is many years since I studied French and we are visiting France again. I would like to be able to speak confidently.

    Hi, does close to B2 mean B2or B1?

    1. admin

      Good day,
      It means that you can perhaps start with B2 level classes or you may need to revise some of the B1 level (B1.2). You can contact Christophe on so that he can assist you with finding your current level, and also checking to see where you may have issues.
