Farhang, English Teacher from Iran

“Moving to a new country is a very stressful process because you need to do a lot of research gathering essential information and resources in order to make this transition as smooth as possible. As much as I was happy about moving to Canada, I had loads of questions and worries.

But I was lucky because I had MOSAIC and SOPA to help me prepare for the big step forward. I registered for the free online courses and they were worth every minute I spent on them. The Job Search Strategies course was a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Canadian job market and its requirements. The course is really intriguing as you get different forms of information in different forms of media.

While I was taking this interactive course, I had to do assignments and quizzes that were professionally and immediately assessed, commented upon, and improved by our very supportive facilitator, Ms Soraya Etminan whose feedback helped me significantly in preparing for moving to Canada. The knowledge and skills I learnt from SOPA helped me to successfully get my first Canadian experience only two weeks after I arrived in Canada, and I strongly recommend SOPA to anyone who is planning to come to Canada. “
