The language of integration


The ESF is supporting Portuguese language skills for immigrants to improve integration

The city of Mangualde in Portugal is taking steps to help its immigrant population integrate better and improve their job prospects. The ‘Portuguese for all’ project offers language training to immigrants at a group of schools in the municipality and has 30 participants so far. Opening the first session, the School’s Director, Agnelo Figueiredo, warmly welcomed the participants and praised the initiative as an important contribution to integration and citizenship.
