No, however the government should provide free language learning courses to aid immigrants in adapting to the large cultural shift, and immigrants should be encouraged to learn the language so they are better equipped to communicate with a majority of the population.
Yes, they should be able to use rudimentary English to suffice in emergencies or daily life such as shopping and using public transport but classes should be provided and they should not be forced to become fluent
Immigrants should have a basic English level to gain employment in Australia, it’s about communication. For getting a Permanent residency, compulsory English tests should be abolished, it’s good character that should be prioritized when getting a PR.
australia is an english speaking country, it shouldnt be required for immigrants to learn english, but it should be encouraged for them to get jobs and education, they should also give free lessons so they have the opportunity to learn
Yes, but the government should supply free language courses and we should continue to support dual/multi language use. More languages it better for everyone. Yes learn English but no you don’t have to stop using your own we should learn some of yours to.
Yes, at least to a certain degree where they can do basic necessities such as go grocery shopping. I think the free language learning courses are a good idea, as long as there is a range of times where they are held and are not mandatory as not everyone may have the means to go to these classes
