Boris Johnson recently launched 'London Enriched' and announced that his new migration board will prioritise lobbying for better ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) provision across London. Mayor Boris Johnson said: 'It is imperative that refugees learn English as soon as possible to ease their integration into London life. Without it, they face immense barriers to gaining employment and further education, the necessary tools that will enable them to fully function and contribute to society. I want to help direct more government support for language provision in London and I’ve formed a multi-agency migration board to prioritise this issue and identify resources to boost provision. 'London is a great, teeming cosmopolis of talent and my ancestors benefited from being able to come to this great city and I'm very proud of that. We don’t want to become a society that is hostile to the talent and energy people can offer. Refugees bring skills, experience, knowledge and often an entrepreneurial spirit that can make a vital contribution to London’s economy. But it must be a two way street, built on positive engagement by both refugees and settled communities for the benefit of all Londoners.'<http://www.expatica.co.uk/news/community_focus/ More-English-lessons-required-for-refugess-in-UK.html>
