A New Life in Canada

out site

Montreal, QC

The Government of Canada is welcoming over 55,000 refugees to the country this year. After all of the hardship faced by these newcomers, one of the most difficult aspects of adjusting will be learning to speak a new language.

As a provider of innovative language instruction, we want to do what we can to ease this adjustment to Canadian life. We created Adapt2me Cares to ensure all those who need language training would not face any barriers to access quick, adequate and free solutions.

We are working with community organizations and NGOs to deliver language instruction to newcomers to Canada. Our Adapt2me Cares plan offers newcomers 6 months of free access to our learning platform and 18 hours of individual tutoring.

Below is Ajwad’s story of moving to Canada, using Adapt2me to improve his English and starting a new job through the assistance of Adapt2me! We want to help more new Canadians like Ajwad. If you know of a recent immigrant who is in need of language solutions, right now, direct them to our online platform and iOS mobile app.

Adapt2me, a new approach to building confidence!

Language Training for Syrian Refugees

The government of Canada plans the resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees in the coming year, in response to the on-going conflict in Syria. As thousands of Syrians continue to arrive in communities across Canada, NGO’s, government offices and businesses are preparing for their arrival and resettlement process.

Canadians have been greeting them with warm clothing, housing, food, personal and household items. Eventually, they will transition from newly arrivals to settled residents. They will require more than the basic necessities of life, such as jobs, cultural integration and language training. Actually, language training is most likely the first need they will require after food, shelter and clothing.

The only way for our new Syrian residents to have successful and fulfilling lives, here in Canada, is through proper language training. Not all, but the majority of them will need to learn or improve their English and those in Quebec will need to learn or improve French.

Surely, the government has FREE language training programs designed specifically for newcomers Canada. However, with the overwhelming number of newly arriving residents many government-sponsored language schools are full with hundreds on the waiting lists.

This is not a good situation for either the government or the new resident. Many of our new residents have professional degrees and have the desire to start working again, soon. In order to fast track their professional careers in Canada, they will need the ability to speak the language, communicate effectively and with confidence.

In addition to limited spaces,  language schools are not suitable for everyone. Many of our new residents have young families and will be spending a lot of time with their families and opting out of daycare (with one parent staying at home). A language school does not provide the right environment for individuals in this situation.
