Action for ESOL - Call for Action!

Action for ESOL - Call for Action! | ELT Digest | Scoop.it

Action for ESOL calls on you to TAKE ACTION!
Why? The government has announced changes to family immigration rules which will stop UK residents on lower incomes from bringing their spouses to the UK. Spouses who are allowed into the UK will have to wait five years and be forced to sit an Entry 3 ESOL exam and take the Life in the UK test in order to get settlement. This is unfair and discriminatory. Action for ESOL is joining JCWI and the Migrants Rights Network in taking action against the changes.
