Are immigrants considered illiterate if they can only read their native languages?

Or is having one language sufficient?

    Is one language enough? No. Illiterate is a person who cannot read or write. So that too would be a no. The definition does not say that the person can not read or write the language of the country they are in.
    You could say they are illiterate in English, but it doesn’t apply to the broad base definition of the word. To not be able to read or write in any language would then apply.
