The intensive track starts at the beginning of A2 level, which means that you must already know the basics of that language (A1).
According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages having reached level A1 means that you:
- Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.
- Can introduce yourself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, people you know and things you have.
- Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
After three years you will reach level C1 in the intensive track. It is advised to choose your best language in the intensive track. The intensive tracks offers three options: German, French and Spanish.
Native speakers of one of the 4 languages offered at RBS cannot choose this language. If you have two mother languages, both are excluded!
