Advanced (W 2): Limited Working Proficiency writing



At this level, you should be able to meet most practical writing needs in work or study situations in another country. You can use a fairly good range of vocabulary and structures. You will still make some grammatical errors at this stage, and words will not be idiomatic.

Newly-written languages

If you are involved in a literacy program mother-tongue authors are developing, you want to encourage them to do most of the writing. In some instances, you might have to write first drafts of texts and check them with mother-tongue speakers for accuracy. A written style will begin to emerge in time, so any materials you first publish will probably have to be revised periodically.
