Basic grammatical structures and sentence patterns are consistently well controlled.

Complex structures are attempted but with errors which sometimes interfere with meaning

Estruturas gramaticais básicas e padrões de frases bem controlada. Tenta estruturas complexas, mas com erros que, por vezes, interferem com o sentido

Aditional Information

Extended level 5 speakers demonstrate less control of complex grammatical structures than do Expert level 6 speakers and may commit global errors from time to time when using complex structures.

It is important to explain that language teaching specialists generally catergorize structural (or grammatical) errors into two classes: “global” and “local”. Global errors are those which interfere with meaning; local errors are those which do not interfere with meaning.

Ok, now that we have read that, what does this mean?

First and second conditionals are used precisely and confidently at the appropriate moments and very rarely without error, the third conditional is attempted, but not always totally succesful.

Due to the nature of the assessment, where you will be asked to explain various aviation accidents and incidents, conditionals are extremely important to the test as you will need to use the words if and maybe a lot and you should make sure that you have a solid understanding of what conditionals are and how to use them before booking your test.
