At European Diplomats, our people strive to deliver impactful solutions that guide businesses through government. As such, we strive to get deeply involved in different initiatives that contribute to this aim and are particularly active in the education sector. In fact, Alistair Starling and Anton Lammers, Co-founders of European Diplomats, are members of the Migration & Language Expert Group (MLEG), a discussion group formed by language and tech-led companies.
The MLEG aims to provide an instrument of discussion between key business and governmental actors in the field of language education in Germany. This group was created under the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees, and Integration, and seeks to continue the kick-off debate on potential opportunities to ensure “good digital German learning for everyone”.
Throughout the meetings, members seek to share insights and observations on the needs of newcomers to Germany to determine potential ways in which Education Technology (EdTech) can help these people adapt and properly integrate into the culture and language of the country. Different aspects like the effects of multiculturalism and COVID on education, understanding the learning journey of incoming immigrants and assessing national German language competences have proved to be essential factors when determining the strategies to implement.
European Diplomats will continue to support and actively participate in this important initiative that helps companies, governments, and newcomers achieve a high-impact solution with global benefits for every party.
