Celebrating English Language Day
Saturday 23 April 2022 was English Language Day; a date that was originally marked as both the birthday and date of death of the great and late William Shakespeare - a renowned English poet, playwright, and actor. The day was created from a Department of Global Communications initiative in 2010,which establishes acknowledgement days for each of the UN’s six official languages, celebrating cultural diversity and promoting equal use of the languages.
The study and mastery of the English language is incredibly important to us here at Migrate. Overseas applicants’ understanding of it is an essential requirement to work as a health and social care worker in the UK. We have a wide range of English language resources on the Migrate app (download it for FREE on iOS or Android).
The English language support we are passionate about providing to our applicants is a key reason why we have proudly partnered with Specialist Language Courses (SLC) – the UK’s leading medical English provider.
SLC teaches overseas healthcare professionals the English used in healthcare settings, e.g.:
· Communicating with patients and colleagues
· Medical terminology, hospital terms
· The language used in medical research, and more
A big focus of SLC’s is to also teach healthcare professionals all they need to know to pass the English language tests needed to be able to register for UK healthcare roles – these tests are primarily the Occupational English Test (OET) and the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
