Students will learn to introduce themselves and others as well as ask and answer questions about personal details such as where they live and where they are from, what they do for work, what their family is like, etc. They will become familiar with the alphabet and the numbers from 0 to 1.000.000. They will be able to ask for and give the prices of various items. They will learn to use a limited number of adjectives to describe objects in the house.
