At the A1 level, you will learn to comprehend and apply recognizable everyday terms and elementary words geared at satisfying concrete requirements. The objective is to be able to introduce yourself and others, including asking and replying to questions about personal information such as residence, acquaintances, and possessions. You can also interact easily if the other person speaks slowly and clearly and is willing to assist. With these skills, you can pass the German level A1 exam and obtain a certificate based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
