  • summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation.

  • express yourself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.(source)

C2 Conversational topics

  • At this level, you are absolutely fluent and can talk about almost everything. No wonder! You're approaching the level presented by well-educated-native speakers.

  • My only advice for you at this level is to dive into details of any topic you decide to discuss.

  • Topics that you should talk such as science, business, media and news, current events, the weather and the environ, actions and verbs, psychology and life lessons etc..

  • More topics that you should talk such as:

  • Why do humans treat their pets like human beings? 

  • What bad habit would you like to break? 

  • How are you feeling? 

  • What movie do you want to see? 

  • What kind of music improves your mood? 

  • If you were a car, which would you be? 

  • You need to put in lots of effort to activate all those obscure words. Don't talk just about shopping. Discuss "high-impact strategies to increase a wholesale diversification". Or, you know, something of this sort.
