Migrants "able to buy" language test pass certificates

 The Home Office is investigating claims that migrants who cannot speak English have been able to buy documents saying they have passed a language test.

The Daily Mail said secret filming at one test centre in London showed that certificates were sold for £500 each. Home Office staff searched a Learn Pass Succeed (LPS) school in Upton Park, east London on Saturday.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said the government took any allegation of fraud extremely seriously. "We will take the strongest possible action against anyone who is found to have abused the rules," he said. He said this included the possibility of criminal prosecutions for fraud.

Greece: Financial crisis brings greater demand for English learning

As financial crisis increases its negative effect on the Greek economy, the need for English is constantly growing, both due to the competitive professional envionment and the fact that thousands of Greeks are emigrating, either to look for a job or to study abroad, being the UK one of the most popular destinations.

Another reason for this higher demand, is the great importance that certificates have adquired in the ELT market. Many employers will only hire people with a solid knowledge of the English language and having a certificate will give you an advantage over other applicants.
