European migrants: importance of English as an integration factor by country

This statistic shows the proportion of respondents who felt that speaking English was one of the most important factors for a European migrant to be accepted into British society in Great Britain in 2013, by their country of residence. Those living in Wales were the most likely to highlight the importance of language to integrating into British society. This may be due to the fact that Wales is bilingual and language plays a more important part in Welsh daily life.
