competence are generally recognized as being related, but separate controversial subjects. In
predominant frameworks in the United States, proficient speakers demonstrate both accuracy and
fluency, and use a variety of discourse strategies. [2] Thus, native speakers of a language can be
fluent without being considered proficient.
