I'm not sure Belgium is a good example, given they can barely form governments anymore because of the French/Flemish divide.


I agree with everyone that English should be encouraged for citizenship. I think it's a bit unrealistic. As others have said, assimilation tends to come from the children.

The nature of immigration is that you're not going to get a massive wave of immigration from the well educated, developed areas of the world where English is taught from a little age.

It's important to set standards but keep them realistic.
