Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, July 24, 2017 — Mauricio Tellez Martinez has always wanted to improve his English by attending a language training program abroad. It’s a dream that he’s had since long before even graduating from high school.

This year, as he was entering his fourth year at university, he learned the exciting news that at last, he would be participating in the Proyecta 10,000 program in the summer of 2017. Along with six other students from Mexico, Mauricio arrived at Collège de l’Île this past July 3 to take part in an intensive four-week immersion program in English.

“I speak English, but I want to expand my vocabulary,” explains Mauricio. “To me this is a necessary part of my studies in mechatronic engineering, because I have to be able to communicate with people from all over the world, and English is often the language that people have in common.”

Collège de l’Île and the Coopérative d’intégration francophone de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard (CIF) are working together to integrate newcomers using the Alpha 1-2-3 program

The Third Education Summit was held on May 4 to 6, 2017, simultaneously in Ottawa, Edmonton and Moncton. This event is held every five years to develop and consolidate the network of Francophone schools across Canada. This year, the Summit’s aim was to encourage joint action around three broad areas of development for the French language elementary and secondary education system: instruction/learning, building an identity and cultural diversity.

Alice Bérubé, Coordinator of Skills Development and Literacy at Collège de l’Île, and Elise Boudreau, the Coordinator of Settlement Services for the CIF, a body with the principal mandate of helping French-speaking newcomers, went to Moncton for the occasion and presented the Alpha 1-2-3 program in the hope that it would inspire other stakeholders in Canada’s Francophone community.
