I read in the Australian newspaper that Howard's government will implement a new plan that requires all the new citizens to take English test. And to be an Australian citizen, they have to pass that test.
This kind of language test should be done at Malaysia too. Can you imagine how many of those immigrants who are not able to speak in Malay? Just imagine how much you lost if you are not able to communicate in native language. It is impossible for someone to become entirely dependent to other people as their interpreter.
