A person "knows how to speak" Catalan when he is capable of maintaining a conversation in Catalan on a current topic.
A person "knows how to read" in Catalan when he is capable of reading common texts in Catalan such as adverts, news articles, etc.
A person "knows how to write" in Catalan when he is capable of writing notes, postcards, etc. with sufficient accuracy, despite not being completely accurate.
