Listening (Oral Comprehension) 

  • Can understand standard language or a familiar variety, live or broadcast, on both familiar and unfamiliar topics normally encountered in personal, social, academic or vocational life. Only extreme [auditory/visual] background noise, inadequate discourse structure and/or idiomatic usage influence the ability to understand. 
  • Can understand the main ideas of propositionally and linguistically complex discourse on both concrete and abstract topics delivered in standard language or a familiar variety, including technical discussions in their field of specialisation. 
  • Can follow extended discourse and complex lines of argument, provided the topic is reasonably familiar, and the direction of the argument is signposted by explicit markers. 

Reading Comprehension 

  • Can read with a large degree of independence, adapting style and speed of reading to different texts and purposes, and using appropriate reference sources selectively.  
  • Has a broad active reading vocabulary, but may experience some difficulty with low-frequency idioms. 

Speaking (Oral Production) 

  • Can give clear, systematically developed descriptions and presentations, with appropriate highlighting of significant points, and relevant supporting detail. 
  • Can give clear, detailed descriptions and presentations on a wide range of subjects related to their field of 
    interest, expanding and supporting ideas with subsidiary points and relevant examples. 

Written Production 

  • Can produce clear, detailed texts on a variety of subjects related to their field of interest, synthesising and evaluating information and arguments from a number of sources. 

General Linguistic Range 

  • Can express themselves clearly without much sign of having to restrict what they want to say.  
  • Has a sufficient range of language to be able to give clear descriptions, express viewpoints and develop arguments without much conspicuous searching for words/signs, using some complex sentence forms to do so.
