1. What is the cartoon at the top of this post suggesting about the citizenship test?

Imigrants that want to come and live in australia have to learn about our cultur and history and how to speak english language if they want to come and live in austrailia.

 2. What are some of the reasons given for the introduction of the citizenship test?
the citizenship test is a basic test on the history and the english language and everyone needs to know if they passed. The test is meant to benafit the people comming into australia as new citizens.

3. What are some reasons given for people who are against the idea of the citizenship?

Some people are against the idea of the test becasue we are meant to be knows as a multi-cultural country and the test is suggesting that we are only accepting certain people. People that dont agree with the citizenship test believe that we need to take more time to teach the people the english language

 4. Which arguments do you find more convincing Explain why?

Both sides of the argument have good points i can understand why we should have the citizenship test because you should really be able to speak the english language and have some idea about our Culture. But on the other hand we might be not be reconised as a multi-cultural country if the test becomes offical.

5.What was the White Australia Policy? Research.

The White Australia Policy was a policy to keep all people who were not white out of Australia, so it would remain a mainly British country. It meant that certain ethnic groups could not gain entry into Australia to become permanent citizens.

6.What do you think the writer of this piece thinks of the citizenship test
