In English please!

BBC News | Councils urged to translate less

Councils are being advised to “think twice” about spending money on translation which might be better spent on English classes.

This is welcome news. The fact is, the first thing you should do when moving to a foreign country is learn the language. The point that many immigrants can go years without needing to learn English is a sad testament to ‘modern multicultural and tolerant Britain’
