Our Deutsch 3 students received their A1 German Language Certificates yesterday. Big congrats to them and a shoutout to their fabulous teacher, Catalina Thomsen.
The A1 level of proficiency of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages — the first step towards the German Language Diploma — attests that a learner can “understand and use very basic phrases, express needs of a concrete type and ask and answer questions about personal details.” Students are tested in four areas of linguistic competence: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Testing is free for our students. What a boost for these 4!
