LANGUAGE LEARNING FOR REFUGEES
LANGO is a free web portal and phone app working together to teach languages to refugees and migrants. Learn English, Dutch, French, Greek, or Turkish.
Considering the troubled political situations in the Middle East and Asia, migration has increased in Turkey and the EU. Therefore, additional tools are needed to integrate the immigrants and refugees arriving there.
The core of successful integration is language acquisition. Mobile applications are successful educational resources for refugees and newcomers who are primarily digitally literate and interested in new technologies. In the framework of this project, we focus on establishing a language-learning solution that is free, fun, and easy to use for all levels of language proficiency. LANGO enables refugees and new-comers to study and learn languages and become familiar with the culture of their new country. This mobile application will be ready for download on the application markets free of cost in 2021.
The application will consist of five target languages (Turkish, English, Dutch, French, and Greek) and ten support languages: Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu, Punjabi, Sorani, Kurmanji, Somali, Tigrinya, Albanian.
The LANGO phone app will include subjects that are necessary for linguistic and cultural adaptation in a new country. Illustrated vocabulary to facilitate recognition. Audio files for pronunciation nuances. Animated audio-visual content to engage users in innovative ways. The topics will involve country-specific concepts to assist integration in each of the partner countries.
