    New English language requirement for partners

    16 August 2010
    From 29 November 2010, any migrant who wants to enter or remain in the UK as the partner of a British citizen or a person settled here will need to show that they can speak and understand English.
    You will need to meet the requirement if:
    you are a national of a country outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland; and
    you are in a relationship with a British citizen or a person settled here; and
    you want to apply to enter or remain in the UK as that person's husband, wife, civil partner, fiance(e), proposed civil partner, unmarried partner or same-sex partner.
    The new requirement was announced on 9 June 2010 in a news story on this website.
    When will the requirement be introduced?
    On 26 July 2010, we announced that the new requirement will come into force on 29 November 2010 by way of changes to the Immigration Rules.
    What will you need to do?
    If you are not a national of a majority English-speaking country (see below), you will need to pass an acceptable English language test with one of our approved test providers. You can find more information about these tests in our list of acceptable tests and approved test providers (PDF 144KB opens is a new window).
    In the test, you will need to demonstrate a basic command of English (speaking and listening) at level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference. This is a basic level, which is judged to require 40 to 50 hours' tuition for most learners. Someone assessed at level A1 can understand and use simple, everyday expressions and very basic phrases.
    You will not need to demonstrate your reading and writing skills.
    When you make your application to us, you will need to provide evidence that you have passed the test.
    You will need to pay for your own English language test. The cost of a test will vary according to your test provider and country.
    What is a majority English-speaking country?
    If you are a national of a majority English-speaking country, you will meet the English language requirement automatically. You will not need to take a test.
    We consider that the following countries are majority English-speaking countries:
    Antigua and Barbuda
    Australia
    the Bahamas
    Barbados
    Belize
    Canada
    Dominica
    Grenada
    Guyana
    Jamaica
    New Zealand
    St Kitts and Nevis
    St Lucia
    St Vincent and the Grenadines
    Trinidad and Tobago
    the United States of America

    Why are Dutchmen NOT in the list? Because we are EU citizen! Otherwise NL is one of the countries with a high English speaking grade because;
    1) we start English lessons at secundary school group 6 ( 9-10 yr old)and is a standard exam at all types of study
    2)we don't have synchronisation for movies, just subtitles .
    3)we are the most international orientated country of Europe .

    The replies above points out that they didn't read it, so xtra attention to it was usefull clown

    Beijing2008 I can read and understood your post. I was poking fun at Graham now maybe you will understand since you didn't the first time you read my post. Don't take everything so serious.

    I think what Beijing is refering to is that a Dutchman, William III was a king of England, William of Orange, Orange,under Dutch control, was actually a province of Catholic France, a bit of a war ensued,the Netherlands won,and France knashed it's teeth throughout Williams life. He became William the III of England after marrying James II's 15yo. daughter Mary. William was a great protestant though many in Ireland would dispute this. I've lost the reason why I've written this piece of information but I hope you've found it interesting!!! lol!

    Hi Chris.

    Yes a brilliant piece of history I think you about two hundred years out of date, Orange Texas's was renamed in the early part of the 18th century the name originated not form Holland Because of the native orange groves that attracted the attention of boatmen as they navigated the Sabine River, the city was renamed to Orange.

    Bob , sorry I was wrong about the name Orange, I read about the Orange groves.
    But since we have Holland Michigan,(like the now called City of Kingston was a Dutch settlement) and made a deal about New Amsterdam with the limeys ,and we got Suriname. And England called it New York. I made a wrong link to our Orange.
    No offence meant !!

    It's a good job us Limeys as you say renamed it from New Amsterdam to New York after The Dutch lost New Netherland to the English during the Second Anglo-Dutch War in 1664.
    Because Frank Sinatra record New York New York would sound rather pathetic singing New Amsterdam New Amsterdam lol

    For you it not SO difficult, move to Ireland, is an other EC country, live or work there for 4 months, and you can have your wife with you , without the language test or other disturbing barriers. Very Happy
