Who is the A0 level for?
Level A0 is intended for complete beginners. Therefore, if you have never studied French, you can start with this level.
How is the A0 level organized?
The lessons fall into three main categories:
You can access each category separately.
This level is not essential if you already have some basics in French. However, it will be very useful if you want to work on specific points of the language.
Please note: If you have no experience in learning French, I strongly advise you to follow the lessons in the right order and start with level A0.
The Vocabulary Section
The vocabulary section always comes with an audio-recorded version. Consequently, this allows you to listen to and repeat each vocabulary word. Above all, the audio recordings and vocabulary words are all interpreted by native speakers.
You will find practice exercises at the end of each vocabulary lesson.
The Grammar Section
The grammar of level A0 focuses on the most used structures. Each lesson comes with audio materials and exercises that will help you further your learning.
The Communication Section
The communication lessons will put you in different real-life situations. As a result, you will work with conversation snippets and learn how to respond to a native speaker in the most natural way possible.
How will my French be after completing level A0?
The level A0 (complete beginner) contains the most basic French knowledge. So, after completing this level, you will be able to say simple sentences and understand a little better the syntax and tenses used to express yourself in French.
If you want to continue your learning, you will have to go to the next level: A1.
In the following levels, you will learn the basics of the French language according to the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The CEFR divides the mastery of French into six levels:
🟢 A1 (language discovery level)
🟡 A2 (elementary level)
🟠 B1 (threshold level)
🔴 B2 (advanced level)
🔵 C1 (autonomous level)
⚫ C2 (master’s level)
I chose to add a level, level A0, which is an introductory level. This is sort of the introductory part of level A1.
The Placement Test
The placement test allows you to check your current level in French. It can also be used to check your progress throughout your learning.
In short, this test is made to evaluate the different levels of mastery of the language, from the complete beginner level (A0) to the mastery level (C2). This test is also very useful for highlighting the grammar points that are causing you problems.
