Quick Tip: Fluency vs Accuracy

When correcting our EFL or ESL students in class or grading their speaking exams, there are two things to keep in mind: fluency and accuracy.  As native speakers we are fluent in English, though we might not always be accurate.

Fluency refers to speaking like a native speaker.  Accuracy refers to not making mistakes.  Try to integrate both of these into your grading rubrics so that your students can have a better idea of what they need to work on.
