Understanding

Listening

I can understand familiar words and

very basic phrases concerning myself,

my family and immediate concrete

surroundings when people speak

slowly and clearly.

I can understand phrases and the

highest frequency vocabulary related

to areas of most immediate personal

relevance (e.g. very basic personal

and family information, shopping,

local area, employment). I can catch

the main point in short, clear, simple

messages and announcements.

I can understand the main points of clear

standard speech on familiar matters

regularly encountered in work, school,

leisure, etc. I can understand the main

point of many radio or TV programmes

on current affairs or topics of personal or

professional interest when the delivery is

relatively slow and clear.

I can understand extended speech and

lectures and follow even complex lines

of argument provided the topic is

reasonably familiar. I can understand

most TV news and current affairs

programmes. I can understand the

majority of films in standard dialect.

I can understand extended speech

even when it is not clearly structured

and when relationships are only

implied and not signalled explicitly. I

can understand television

programmes and films without too

much effort.

I have no difficulty in understanding any

kind of spoken language, whether live

or broadcast, even when delivered at

fast native speed, provided I have some

time to get familiar with the accent.

Reading

I can understand familiar names, words

and very simple sentences, for

example on notices and posters or in

catalogues.

I can read very short, simple texts. I

can find specific, predictable

information in simple everyday

material such as advertisements,

prospectuses, menus and timetables

and I can understand short simple

personal letters.

I can understand texts that consist

mainly of high frequency everyday or job-

related language. I can understand the

description of events, feelings and

wishes in personal letters.

I can read articles and reports

concerned with contemporary

problems in which the writers adopt

particular attitudes or viewpoints. I can

understand contemporary literary

prose.

I can understand long and complex

factual and literary texts, appreciating

distinctions of style. I can understand

specialised articles and longer

technical instructions, even when they

do not relate to my field.

I can read with ease virtually all forms of

the written language, including abstract,

structurally or linguistically complex

texts such as manuals, specialised

articles and literary works.

Speaking

Spoken

interaction]

I can interact in a simple way provided

the other person is prepared to repeat

or rephrase things at a slower rate of

speech and help me formulate what I'm

trying to say. I can ask and answer

simple questions in areas of immediate

need or on very familiar topics.

I can communicate in simple and

routine tasks requiring a simple and

direct exchange of information on

familiar topics and activities. I can

handle very short social exchanges,

even though I can't usually

understand enough to keep the

conversation going myself.

I can deal with most situations likely to

arise whilst travelling in an area where

the language is spoken. I can enter

unprepared into conversation on topics

that are familiar, of personal interest or

pertinent to everyday life (e.g. family,

hobbies, work, travel and current

events).

I can interact with a degree of fluency

and spontaneity that makes regular

interaction with native speakers quite

possible. I can take an active part in

discussion in familiar contexts,

accounting for and sustaining my

views.

I can express myself fluently and

spontaneously without much obvious

searching for expressions. I can use

language flexibly and effectively for

social and professional purposes. I

can formulate ideas and opinions with

precision and relate my contribution

skilfully to those of other speakers.

I can take part effortlessly in any

conversation or discussion and have a

good familiarity with idiomatic

expressions and colloquialisms. I can

express myself fluently and convey finer

shades of meaning precisely. If I do

have a problem I can backtrack and

restructure around the difficulty so

smoothly that other people are hardly

aware of it.

Spoken

production

I can use simple phrases and

sentences to describe where I live and

people I know.

I can use a series of phrases and

sentences to describe in simple

terms my family and other people,

living conditions, my educational

background and my present or most

recent job.

I can connect phrases in a simple way in

order to describe experiences and

events, my dreams, hopes and

ambitions. I can briefly give reasons and

explanations for opinions and plans. I

can narrate a story or relate the plot of a

book or film and describe my reactions.

I can present clear, detailed

descriptions on a wide range of

subjects related to my field of interest. I

can explain a viewpoint on a topical

issue giving the advantages and

disadvantages of various options.

I can present clear, detailed

descriptions of complex subjects

integrating sub-themes, developing

particular points and rounding off with

an appropriate conclusion.

I can present a clear, smoothly-flowing

description or argument in a style

appropriate to the context and with an

effective logical structure which helps

the recipient to notice and remember

significant points.

Writing

Writing

I can write a short, simple postcard, for

example sending holiday greetings. I

can fill in forms with personal details,

for example entering my name,

nationality and address on a hotel

registration form.

I can write short, simple notes and

messages. I can write a very simple

personal letter, for example thanking

someone for something.

I can write simple connected text on

topics which are familiar or of personal

interest. I can write personal letters

and reviews of professional or literary

works.
