Le Savez-vous? Les tâches qui paraissent simples pour les canadiens, comme prendre l’autobus, parler à un médecin, assister à une entrevue parent-enseignant, aller à la banque, demander la direction…, et bien d’autres peuvent être très difficiles pour les réfugiés ou toute autre personne nouvellement arrivée qui manquent de connaissances en français et ne sont pas en mesure de suivre des cours de français pour toutes sortes de raisons.
Une occasion qui vous permettra de partager vos connaissances et de faire une différence dans la vie d'un nouvel arrivant au Canada.
