The Linguist Blogger on fluency

The Linguist Blogger has a very interesting podcast up in which he and a friend discuss language learning in general, and fluency specifically. Regarding fluency, I especially appreciated how it was stressed that when you say you speak a language, it should be qualified in some way. Otherwise it’s open to an awful lot of interpretation (e.g., does being able to fluently order a coffee mean you speak fluently?) Do check out the podcast.
