3 Speech flow is slow but continuous. Repetition and correction are frequent. Few linkers are used in speech. Coherence is lost at times. Errors in word form and choice are frequent with unfamiliar topics, but mostly correct for familiar topics. Still uses enough vocabularies to form complete sentences.
