Migrants and teachers, the platform to speak (of self), a different perspective: the refugees teach us the languages
the ROME - language Learning and technology: the combination is so well proven that it seems difficult to find variations innovative. Nevertheless, this is what has made Mursal Hedayat with Chatterbox, the startup created in 2016 where to get in the chair are the migrants. Mursal has managed to redesign a service widespread as that of the coaching linguistic: not only that the platform offers courses in the languages spoken around the world, but it helps people to integrate in the fabric of the business and social spheres of the host countries. But that's not all here. According to the young businesswoman, in fact, to prepare migrants to become teachers and put them on the other side of the chair helps to reverse the rhetoric of the “migrant need”, which is based on a perspective is short-sighted and stale.

The difficulty of insertion in the world of work. In the United Kingdom, for example, where Chatterbox was launched, the percentage of immigrant persons in possession of a degree or of a qualification work is very high, about 40%. In spite of this, the access to the labour market is more difficult for those who come from a different country. This is often difficult, bureaucratic, or cultural. All of this Mursal knows it well: a native of Kabul in the Nineties, flees to London with her mother. She has just three years, while her mother, leaves behind an important career as engineer in civil. Despite his experience, London has the difficulty of insertion and does not find work in his field. Then it must reinvent itself as a teacher of English, one of the four languages she speaks fluently: this will be the starting idea of the Chatterbox. Mursal graduated in economics at the university of Leeds where she explores the themes of social entrepreneurship. In the following years, develops Chatterbox with Guillemette Dejean. Starting from 2017, the their startup has been successful and received many awards, such as the MIT Innovators Prize, and the Forbes 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneurs in 2018. And it continues to grow.

How it works Chatterbox? , The aspiring tutor will come to Chatterbox, where they are evaluated and then trained to become teachers of their native language – if not already in the homeland. The languages offered, for now, twelve are: Arabic, bengali, French, hindi, Korean, mandarin, Persian, somali, Spanish, swahili, Turkish, urdu. These are languages which are widely used, some of them spoken in the major emerging economy. The service is offered to individuals but also companies and universities.

the meaning of The integration in the age of migration. Several studies attest to the fact that that migration is not a crisis, but a stable trend: by 2050, at least 200 million people will be displaced, or born in a place and forced to leave to settle elsewhere. Other estimates speak of a billion. Who are refugees, displaced persons, refugees, economic migrants or climate, this is the reality of the facts. In this perspective, social integration is a key ingredient to make the company efficient and functional. The mission of the Chatterbox is just this: to create a link between refugees and the world of work, and at the same time enhance their cultural and professional skills, unique, can enrich the community.

in Summary. Mursal is a so-called millennials, that instead of creating yet another startup to the theme of food has decided to rethink his experience, break the cage of “refugee " in need” and to provide a useful service, positive, giving the chance to men and women who have a lot to offer and a few channels for it. This is Chatterbox, a startup in rapid growth, and from the future more than promising. Several English universities, and many companies have already started to use the service. That may happen the same also in Italy?
