Conference hears migrant language testing worries
Jamaican speakers might be able to pick up a few new words thanks to the Canadian government’s latest announcement that it would open a new research centre at an abandoned munitions warehouse on the outskirts of Kingston.
It will allow the new centre to focus on the use of English as a second language among the first-generation immigrants who arrived in Canada after the end of the Second World War.
But language tests might be another thing entirely.
The government has released plans to hire 25 full-time staff at the project for three years starting at the end of this year and to continue with the project until 2018. The government also wants to hold language workshops every six months at a number of the sites to develop awareness of Engli일산출장샵sh use among the new arrivals.
That includes one that took place last summer at the site where most of the immigrants’ families are being resettled in Kingston.
The Canadian government is also holding language workshops next year — although only to foreign speakers.
The language workshops were supposed to be free, but it cost about $200,000, the Kingston Star noted. Th포커 의 신e project is still being approved by the federal department.
The Kingston government has said English is a “first-generation immigrant” language. Other languages used for research purposes include French, Spa실시간카지노nish and Chinese.
