Spain to introduce language test for Citizenship

The Central Government of Spain has proposed the introduction of a national Spanish-language test that will be given to all foreigners who wish to apply for citizenship.

The government has come up with a draft bill that would amend the Civil Code regarding nationality requirements. Around 100,000 people file papers each year seeking Spanish nationality.

According to Spanish newswire Europa Press, government officials are still discussing with Education Ministry officials what form the standardize test should take.

The Partido Popular in its campaign platform had already announced plans to ensure that new citizens are capable of reading, writing and speaking the language.
