Boris Johnson, the favorite to become the next U.K. Prime Minister, has stated that all immigrants to the United Kingdom should be required to learn English.
“I want everybody who comes here and makes their lives here to be and to feel British, that is the most important thing. And to learn English,” Johnson told a meeting of Conservative association members.
“Too often there are parts of our country, parts of London still and other cities as well, where English is not spoken by some people as their first language,” Johnson said. “And that needs to be changed.”
