ESL parents or new immigrants to Canada often do not have an understanding of English, French and/or how to support their child in elementary school in Canada. We have developed a platform that facilitates communication with their child’s teacher in the language of their choice and visual contextualization of their child’s performance. This will hugely improve communication with the teacher, allow them to access a broad range of information about the system that their child is learning in and understand their child’s improvement, growth and performance.
