    Hi everyone
    so i was wondering that when some jobs/internships say you have to be fluent in a certain language then does that mean you have to be 100% fluent? I understand that this may sound like a silly question and i know what fluent means. However if the job wants a french speaker for example then obviously they would understand that you would know your first language which was say English better than french or do you have to have the same level of proficiency in both?

    Thanks and sorry for the long sentences!

    I think fluency could mean you can speak, read and write in that language in real time with no difficulty. So, basically I am Thaia dn Thai is my native language. I can speak English very fluently where I don't even need to think anymore (I was not born here) so that is the level of fluency that you would be expected to have. Basically, you can engage in a conversation in that language with no struggle.
