Migrants to sit harder English tests

Oliver Peterson

Citizenship Minister Alan Tudge has warned that Australia’s successful multiculturalism model is at risk unless significant policy intervention addresses lower integration rates and falling English language skills.

“I think it’s critical that all Australian citizens speak and understand English because ultimately it’s the glue that holds our society together. Further, if you speak English well you have a much greater chance of getting a job and of course our democracy depends on there being a common language across people.” – Alan Tudge, Citizenship Minister spoke with Oliver Peterson.
