Performance Summary: This candidate has a tendency to swallow the ends of words as well as mispronouncing some particular items which occasionally interfere with intelligibility. His basic structures are generally well controlled, although there are sufficient errors to hold him to Level 4. Even though he demonstrates a sufficient range of vocabulary with some less common items, problems with word formation and a lack of precision when paraphrasing prevent him from reaching Level 5. He is able to produce some long turns and fillers are not distracting. There is occasional loss of fluency when he is searching for vocabulary and structures. This coupled with a number of false starts keep him to Level 4. His comprehension is mostly accurate on common, concrete, work related topics. He requires further clarification and demonstrates slower comprehension when confronted with linguistic complications, making him a clear Level 4. Although the candidate's responses in Part 1 are a little hesitant, he deals well with Parts 2B, C and Part 3. His responses are immediate and informative, responding very naturally to the Examiner's follow up questions.
