British govt. to make Muslim women learn English

LONDON, Jan. 19 (MNA) – British Prime Minister David Cameron announced Monday a plan to make Muslim women learn English and stated that this measure seeks to promote a greater integration.


According to The Times, Cameron said there are 190,000 Muslim women who speak little or no English.

The government will provide 26 million euros for language classes in order to help Muslim women learn English.

The newly arrived must improve their English within the period of two and half year, while for those who already live in the country the tests will begin in October.

Muslim women who fail to learn the language could face deportation.

According to Cameron, someone can move to here with very basic English and with no requirement to improve it over time. We will change that. We will say now: if you don’t improve your fluency, that could affect your ability to stay in the UK.
