Social Impact

Gymglish actively supports European, inclusive values. We aim to facilitate access to education, ensure equitable treatment for employees and suppliers, and try to contribute, in our own small way, to preserving the environment.

As part of our "Social Impact” program, we support the goals of our partner associations by offering free training to their community and beneficiaries.

Our objective is to offer effective digital education to learners all over the world through an engaging user experience and better retention of the material learned. For example, we offer:

. English, French, Spanish and German lessons to young graduates from modest social backgrounds and priority areas
. French as a foreign language for new arrivals in France
. General culture courses for people experiencing difficulty finding employment

The Social Impact program in a few key figures:

More than 27,000 licenses distributed since Gymglish was founded in 2004
15 new partners joined the program in 2020
More than 1,000 new beneficiaries in 2020

"Since 2008, Gymglish has been offering free online English and French spelling courses to our young graduates. In total, more than 11,000 students have received a free Gymglish or Frantastique Ortho license. We’re pleased to see high engagement rates among our graduates, and we know the adaptive learning method is useful because levels are quite diverse between learners. Young people entering the job market know that they may have trouble securing a new role if their English language skills or French spelling isn’t up to standard.”

Sidonie Dogboé, Project Manager at NQT whose beneficiaries use Gymglish, Frantastique Ortho and Mémorable.

"We know that mastering several foreign languages an undeniable advantage for career purposes. In Brazil, the unemployment rate is high, and employment discrimination persists, especially for those who come from favelas. Showing up at a job interview with some basics in French or English is a tremendous asset.”

Nina Soutoul, co-manager at Casa Amarela in Rio de Janeiro whose beneficiaries use Gymglish, Frantastique and Rich Morning.
