In this article, we deal with the DELF level A2 Pro, transit level, but necessary to consolidate yourself and take a greater impulse to continue your studies of the French language, since you can already face situations with which you are going to acquire base, experiences, and impulse to continue.

DELF Pro A2 constitutes the second level of DELF Pro. The DELF Pro A2 recognizes the French linguistic competence of a basic user in a Francophone professional context. Do you work in a French-speaking company and carry out various professional activities? DELF Pro A2 assesses whether you are able to carry out your different activities in relation to different services and co-workers.

A2 Transient level

At level A2 (transit level), we will find the majority of descriptors indicating that social functions are found, such as the use of simple and polite forms of greeting and direction every day; greeting people, asking how they are, and reacting to the news; handle very brief social exchanges; ask and answer questions about what they do at work and in their free time; make and respond to invitations; discuss what to do, where to go, and arrange to meet; prepare and accept offers.

At level A2, we will also find the descriptors on how to go out: the simplified reduced version of the full set of transactional specifications at “the threshold level” for adults living abroad, such as: making simple transactions in shops, post offices, or banks; get simple travel information; use public transport: buses, trains, and taxis, ask for basic information, ask for and give directions and buy tickets; ordering and providing everyday goods and services.
