Boston Globe Report Says Immigrants Must Learn English – proenglish

by learn a language journalist

A recent report in the Boston Globe examined the impact of learning English on the income of immigrants, and Globe journalist Katie Johnston reported, “Learning English is arguably the most valuable skill immigrants can acquire after they arrive in the United States.”

Johnston cited a recent study in Massachusetts conducted by the Economic Mobility Corporation. The study covered 800 immigrants, and the findings concluded that the annual income of immigrants who studied English was thousands of dollars higher than that of those who did not, and their earnings grew at a faster rate. One of the study’s co-authors called the results “absolutely stunning.”

ProEnglish is the nation’s leading advocate of official English. We work through the courts and in the court of public opinion to defend English’s historic role as America’s common, unifying language, and to persuade lawmakers to adopt English as the official language at all levels of government.
