Netherlands Government Wants Immigrants To Learn Dutch Or Get Out!

It's interesting! Boy, it surely is interesting! The government in the Netherlands has the immigration law that requires the immigrants to show proficiency in Dutch language and also have the cultural knowledge. Those who fail to comply with the laws may face deportation! Well, I'm not making that up; in fact you can read about it on TIME Magazine: https://newsfeed.time.com/2011/04/12/netherlands-to-immigrants-learn-dutch-or-fear-deportation/

What's more interesting is that the Government is making the tests too hard to pass. I'm a little shocked by the brazenness of the small country in Europe that wants to preserve its own language and culture by setting up rules.

What's your take?
Its a bad idea of forcing immigrants to learn their country language as mandatory.It may decrease the amount of immigrants to dutch (netherland).
i dont think it can increase cultural benefits .It should be learned with passion not by any enforcement.

I am against the idea.
