Abstract

English language fluency is regarded by the current government as a route to integration for newly arriving groups including third country nationals, EU citizens from the new accession states, and refugees and asylum seekers. The Bangladeshi community is the focus of investigation in this research as it has the lowest levels of fluency of all ethnic groups. Moreover, the group is strongly concentrated in Tower Hamlets and six other Inner London Boroughs north of the Thames and may be expected to be less integrated than other communities with a more dispersed pattern of settlement.
