In Europe, knowledge of the   language of the host society is increasingly becoming a necessary condition   for the integration of migrants into their country of arrival, whether it is   to enter the country, to obtain permission for permanent residence or to   acquire citizenship. A large number of European countries are thus   implementing different language training policies sanctioned by tests. Comparative   surveys conducted in 2007 and 2009 by the Council of Europe provide further   information.
Key words
Integration, language, policy
