Language Code Proficiency Level
As a child, English was my primary language with te reo as secondary in the home and community. As an adult, my home is bilingual - I have reo-only relationships both in and outside of it.
The language code proficiency level categories at User language written in English would define me as a 'native speaker' of language code mi (henceforth referred to as 'the reo'). However, the reo translation used at [] for level "N" can be translated as 'the Maori language is the language of upbringing of this person'. As the reo was not the primary language of my home as a child, I have opted to prioritise [] definition over the User language English language version. It is recommended that a standardisation test be developed to measure equivalence of categories between languages.
