Haddiema barranin b'kuntratt ta izjed min sena f'Servizz Publiku bhal tobba, infermiera u haddiema ohra f'sptarijiet tal-Gvern ghandhom jattendu klassijiet tal-Malti biex il-pazjenti Maltin ikunu assigurati li qedin jinghataw l-kura mehtiega. Kien hemm kazijiet serji minhabba in-nuqqas ta ftehim sew bejn pazjent u nfermier/tabib barrani.
I agree that they should learn the Maltese langauge. It is not fair to put old age patients at a great disadvantge by not being able to express themselves in their native language. Whoever wants to make a living in our country should fully integrate into our society, by making it compulsory for them to have a good command and speak well the English language and can understand the Maltese language. To have a Maltese accompanying them is a waste of money and precious time.i
Naqbel li m'għandux ikun prerequisite imma għandu jkun imħeġġeġ. Dan għandu jkun għodd ukoll għall-immigranti u għal uliedhom tal-ewwel ġenerazzjoni.
I do not think that we should refuse the services of good qualified foreign professionals by insisting that they compulsorily learn the Maltese language , although understanding and speaking Maltese language would be a help. I would however require that they speak and understand well the English language and that they should be accompanied by Maltese officials whenever patients ask for help because of language difficulties.
