Navitas English runs special programs to help students and migrants to learn English. One of the programs is AMEP or Adult Migrant English Program. This program is run by NAVITAS on behalf of the commonwealth government, aimed at giving migrants and refugees who want to settle in Australia, the skills to learn and practice English for their settlement and the running of daily life

Mr. Basim Shamaon is the community liaison officer for Navitas. He has been working with them for many years. 

He talks about the projects and plans of Navitas including, the foundation skills for your future. A program that encourages people who had settled in Australia before, but never had the opportunity to learn English, to study the language to gain the skills to advance in their life.

Also, Basim talks about another program about COVID-19 called Ask an Expert. Participants in this program are invited to join a ZOOM meeting where every time, one expert from a specific field will explain life matters during the pandemic.

Mr. Shamaon also offered his willingness to come to SBS Assyrian program to present any topic related to Navitas and other settlement issues.
