The project "Language Support for new arrivals" have chosen Vocab's mobile learning tool MyVocab. The initiative is aimed at newly arrived refugees who want to do an internship at a workplace. To facilitate two types of support are offered: personal support in the form of language coaches using the participants' own mother tongue who can help the trainee and the workplace supervisor in the communications, as well as Vocab's mobile phone learning tool for effective language development.

Participants will through the mobile learning tool MyVocab have opportunity to learn and review language exercises in a totally individualized process. Texts related to teaching can be read in an integrated mobile e-book reader. Communicative Swedish and work-related social situations are trained through an entirely new type of interactive scenario player with support for audio and images. Participants can train via dialogues and face both linguistic, cultural and social work issues. The mobile tool is implemented for each scenario to provide feedback on the various choices made. Through integration between MyVocab and validation system OCN instant confirmation can be given to the participant after each learning goal achieved.
