Do you want to know what the French A2 Curriculum is? Well look no further! In this post I am going to share the French A2 Curriculum so you know exactly what will be on Language Atlas.

It’s my mission to have all the French grammar on Language Atlas, but it is a work in progress. I will keep adding lessons, so be sure to check in often!

As you may know the French language can be categorized in 6 levels.

This is according to the CEFR model.

I will begin with the Verbs in the French A2 Curriculum as I believe that verbs are the most important part of the language.

After this is done I will move onto other areas.

I will show you exactly what I have, and what I plan on doing.

Verbs are sometimes also called action words. They cause something to happen in a sentence. They are the source of action and movement.
