Does it sound ok, if I say "I can speak xxx conversationally?" Or is it better to say "I can speak xxx at an intermediate level."
Please give me your words & ideas. Basically, I don't want to make out that I'm fluent in the language, but since I can get along fine on a broad range of topics, I want the adjective/adverb to do my ability justice.
Levels of language proficiency?? Watch

with some fluency
to a conversational level
to an intermediate level is a bit... flouncy and doesn't really mean much
i'd say "i speak conversational french"

I always used conversational, but to be honest I think I am more between conversational and fluent. Hopefully I'll find my answer here. Thanks for asking OP
