Voilà! – you’re fluent. However, the formula 'grammar + vocabulary' is not enough to become a competent speaker of English (or any other language). Even when learners can make themselves understood, and use correct grammar and vocabulary, you often get the nagging feeling that something is missing from their conversation.

Just as with any skill, the ability to organise what you say into a whole can be taught.
