Internet spelling police are in a frenzy because the UK Home Office spelled the word ‘language’ wrong when announcing a new tough English test for migrants in the country.
Last week, Prime Minister David Cameron announced a new English Language requirement for family migrants. Mr. Cameron said all those who entered the UK on the five-year spousal settlement programme, would have to sit language tests after spending two and a half years in the country.
Other migrants who have settled in the UK will need to pass a speaking and listening test at “level A2” in order to qualify and remain on a five-year route to settlement. From what we have found out, those who fail in this new test will likely be deported to their home countries.
However, in announcing this new rule to non-native speakers of the language, the official website of the Home Office wrote in the banner headline: “New English langauge test for family route migrants.”
We have to be fair here however, hardly anybody who works for the government these days has English as their first langwidge.
