I won't claim to be proficient in French until I can retain my fluency in states of high emotion, use puns, construct a convincing argument and make an interesting presentation. But I'm still working on those skills in English...
totally agree on that.
In french a good test is if you understand the puns of the late Raymond Devos then you are definitely proficient.
