Brazilian Kids Learn English by Talking to Lonely Chicago Seniors

Jay Hathaway

video



Brazilian kids in Liberdade wanted to speak fluent English, while senior citizens at a Chicago retirement home were looking for new friends. CNA's Speaking Exchange program put the two together over video chat, and it turned out to be a perfect match.

The kids knew they were getting an opportunity to practice their English, but they didn't know they were getting new grandparents, too. The only sad part is that all the hugs are long-distance—for now, anyway. Some of the retirees are already talking about visiting Brazil one day.

Awesome idea. I just hope none of those students will take advantage of those old people in the long run
