Our English level A1 (Beginner / Elementary) study targets express the most relevant components for an A1 learner. These language points can be used to set “Can do” targets for self-study or to develop your study programme in an English course with a qualified trainer.
We also provide some free online English lessons, which include descriptions of each language point, examples and quizzes.
Our English level descriptors are adapted from the international CEFR framework. This is set out by the Council of Europe (2001) Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment.
