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...
My Russian teacher used to bang her fists on her desk and shout, "How can you possible learn Russian when you can't even speak your own language?!?"
