Saskatoon, Canada (PressExposure) February 05, 2009 -- Preserving Your Heritage Language is the key to preserving your next generation, giving your immigrant children a true sense of identity and a high level of self esteem."
-- Soji Oyenuga, 2006
It is every immigrant parents desire and joy to see that they have successfully provided their children with the adequate tools and resources that they need to make it through life, especially in a foreign land. This includes the desire to see their children carry on their values and culture which involves their children's ability to speak their heritage language. It is always a great achievement for most parents when they can confidently say that their children are well equipped and able to fit in perfectly in their heritage community without any reservations. When parents do not see this in their children, they secretly nurture the fear of losing their beloved children to a strange culture and watch helplessly as their children begin to look for new identities outside their heritage community. They rightly fear that their children have been culturally lost amidst the great western culture.
Gaptel Innovative Solutions Inc, a company established in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, that is known for its efforts for the promotion and preservation of immigrant heritage languages and culture has released a free special report to help solve this problem. They believe immigrant children can have the best of both western and immigrant culture.
