According to Cameron, poor English skills can leave people “more susceptible” to the messages of groups like Islamic State. Immigration rules of Britain already force spouses to speak English before they come to Britain to live with their partners. According to government estimates around 190,000 Muslim women in England among which around 22 percent speak little or no English.
