  • Have full operational command of the English language.
  • Use English words in an appropriate and fluent way.
  • Speak fluently and rarely need to correct or repeat yourself.
  • Understand more or less everything when someone speaks with you and can engage with topics fully within a conversation.

This is the highest band score available.
