  • rent, buy, sell a car, a bicycle, a house
  • situate yourself: asks and give directions, talk about the weather, ask for the time
  • ask for information at the municipality offices, the unemployment office, the CPAS
  • make appointments and phone calls
  • understand and write a letter, a document
