The ability to express and interpret thoughts, feelings and facts in both oral and written form (listening, speaking, reading and writing), and to interact linguistically in an appropriate way in the full range of societal and cultural contexts- education and training, work, home and leisure.
The Common European Framework is very clear about this:
“ The learner of a second or foreign language and culture does not cease to be competent in his or her mother tongue and the associated culture. Nor is the new competence kept entirely separate from the old. The learner does not simply acquire two distinct, unrelated ways of acting and communicating. The language learner becomes plurilingual and develops interculturality .”
Users and learners of a languge are primarily ‘social agents’, i.e. members of society who have tasks (not exclusively languge-related) to accomlish in a given set of circumstances, in a specific environment and withing a particulr field of action.
