Grammar will be understood easily because they have already built a foundation after accomplishing level A1, it’s not completely strange anymore. The complexity will be gradual and not all at once.

Level A2 will provide the skills that will allow you to write simple notes and messages in areas of immediate need, talk in a simple way about family, educational background, daily routines, read short and simple texts, find information in advertisements, menus or timetables and understand phrases with vocabulary related to personal interest.

By the end of this level reading, writing, speaking and listening will seem easier than at level A1. Students will start to see that it is really worth it to make the effort.
