You can already interact in a simple way provided your interlocutor is prepared to repeat or rephrase words or communications at a slower rate of speech and help you formulate what you are trying to say. You are able to ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need or on very familiar topics. You use basic phrases and sentences to describe where you live and people you know. You are also able to write a short, simple postcard, such as a holiday greeting, and fill out forms with personal details.
