Only one meets
A1: Beginner or
You are a complete beginner and have no prior or very little practical ability in using the language, with the exception of perhaps a few key words or sentences (exchange greetings, give your identity and name a few familiar objects of your environment). Using gestures, pictures, CD’s and DVD’s you will develop speaking/pronunciation skills and basic vocabulary, grammar and survival language.
You are a “false beginner” or “advance beginner” – i.e. you have a foundation but very basic knowledge of the language, with a limited vocabulary. You had some exposure to the language. You have no real understanding of the grammar and can produce no more than a few key words and memorized phrases. Maybe you haven’t used the language in a while, or simply want to start at ‘the beginning’.
E.g. you can introduce yourself, ask simple directions and order food & drink in a café or restaurant.

A2: Elementary or

You can express yourself in familiar contexts, albeit with quite a few mistakes still.
You can communicate effectively, if not always accurately, in most everyday situations and could consider working in the country using the language (e.g. bar/counter work, service in cafés, basic office work). You can distinguish the differences among the past tenses and the use of conditional and you are able to narrate in the past.

Good vocabulary and a fair understanding of fundamental grammatical rules and how to apply them. Reasonably confident speaking in most common, social or work settings and developing fluency in your reading and writing.
