UK PM Cameron launches English language campaign for Muslim women
Jan 20, 2016 British Prime Minister David Cameron recently pledged 20 million pounds for English classes for women in isolated communities.
He however said migrants who cannot pass an English test within 2-1/2 years of arriving in the UK may not be allowed to stay.
Speaking in a television interview in London, Cameron said:
“We want to build a more integrated, cohesive, one nation society, where everyone can make the most of their talents. You can’t have a country of opportunity if some people can’t speak the language. In many cases it is through no fault of their own, because they have been put into a situation where they are encouraged not to integrate, not to go out, not to learn the language and that’s not good enough. That needs to change in our country and these proposals will make sure it does,”
