What is an advanced speaker of English?
According to the Common European Framework (CEF), a PROFICIENT (or advanced) user can understand from a wide range of demanding language to understanding virtually everything heard or read.
A proficient or advanced speaker can recognise implicit meaning, summarise information and reconstruct arguments coherently. In addition, they can express themselves fluently, spontaneously and precisely and, most importantly, use the language effortlessly, flexibly and naturally. Advanced users are recognised as being at the CEF stages of C1 (Effective Operational Proficiency) and C2 (Mastery)
