    Hi,

    I would like to obtain information on "communicative competence" on the context of second language learning.

    Thanks for your consideration to my request.

    Competence means what the learner knows. If they make a mistake that they know is wrong, that is a performance error, not a competence error. Communicative competence would be assessed by their ability to communicate their message, where this would be more important than any mistakes. If a student is givenm a task and performs it, they are showing communicative competence, but may not be speaking accurately. :P
