Isolated Older People as Language Tutors

This is a wonderful project wherein Brazilian children learn to perfect their spoken English by conversing with older people in the USA over video conference links.

I want to make something like this happen involving older people in the UK. Who can help me make it a reality?

  1. This is a really interesting idea. My 12 year old is learning Italian and no-one in the family speaks it. So she goes around to see an elderly Italian lady each week for an hour’s conversation. This works really well all round. I can see that this might work via Skype but face to face is where most older people feel comfortable and you can give them a hug too!
