Level 2 is at pre-intermediate level and may be used after Level 1 or as a free standing course on its own.The course has been developed specifically for the Australian context and has been piloted in Australia and New Zealand. It is also suitable for use by people studying elsewhere, and who are going to visit or study in these countries.
