Levels of spoken English / English fluency

  • English fluency can not be reached within a few days.
  • It may take months or some times years.
  • No one can clearly define what the upper limit is.
  • Some people are satisfied with their speaking ability, if they can speak a few words like ‘Thank you’.
  • Some people are happy, if they can just understand what others speak.
  • Some people will agree only if they could speak for certain time continuously.
  • Some people will not agree till they are confident enough to speak in English in various topics.
  • The level or standard is determined by the individuals involved and not by someone else.
