This question relates to:
French lesson "Venir de + infinitive = To have just done (Le Passé Proche)"

Bonjour Laurie,
Je viens de lire votre question. Quite frankly, I am unclear how the grammar points in the lesson levels are decided. I do recall learning the use of «venir de + infinitive» early on but quite frankly I could not tell you at this point in time whether it was A1 or A2 but I am pretty sure it was along with le futur proche. Perhaps this is a question for the PLF or Kwiziq team to respond to.

From CLE international, «le Nouveau Sans Frontières, Niveau 1», I was able to locate le passé récent lesson. It is actually in the last chapter of 4 chapters which possibly begins the transition into the level 2 book.
I will certainly, at this point, leave any further discussion to the Kwiziq team to assist you in sorting this out.

J'espère que ma réponse vous aidera.
Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière.

Bonjour Laurie !

The reason we chose to place Le Passé Proche in A1 is that it's a very simple way for beginners to express an idea in the past, without having yet learned any past tense conjugation.
All it requires is Le Présent of "venir", which is indeed in A1.

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
