The government recognises that language skills are crucial to help people integrate into life in England, as well as to break down barriers to work and career progression.

As part of the response to the Integrated Communities Strategy Green paper (attached), the government will publish a new strategy for English for speakers of other languages in autumn 2019. We are working across government to develop the strategy which will provide a shared vision for all publicly funded English language provision.
