Working Fluency means an individual can handle both routine and unfamiliar situations in both formal and informal settings. This person is able to adjust responses in the target language to respond to a unique circumstance or question. They can make specific recommendations or suggestions based on client feedback, give detailed explanations and precise descriptions of services, terms, procedures and policies, resolve problems, or justify a company policy or procedure. Although their communication may include grammar or pronunciation errors, they have enough accuracy to be understood by any speaker of the language.
