Brazilian students learning English by chatting with lonely elders in the US

A São Paulo language school has launched an initiative to help it’s students get more talk time with native English speakers. And in doing so they have made a step towards reducing loneliness.

Made possible by technology and video chat accessibility, the idea is to match lonely elders in the US to keen language students in Brazil. Their needs are actually very similar; to talk! About anything!

A live video chat between a Brazilian student and an American elder
The project is called "Speaking Exchange" and is being implemented at the CNA language school in São Paulo with the pilot having been run in the Liberdade branch in São Paulo and Windsor Park Retirement Community in Chicago.

The initiative is a great example of dual learning, going beyond the teacher-learner dynamic in a way that both sides develop culturally and emotionally, making new friendships in the process.

On the back end, videos are automatically recorded and posted to teachers in order for the to evaluate their students and study their conversational development.

it's true that in the ways you mention, English is one of the easier languages in the world. However, you left out one key element--that English, plain and simple, makes no sense

IELTS Speaking Grammar

martha victor said...

English is the hardest language to be fluent in, in the world. However, it is not the hardest language to learn on the basic level.

How to prepare IELTS

sara said...

it easier when you are writing in the language that you grew up speaking. While many of us who may read this post grew up speaking English, that does not mean that we may not need to improve in one aspect or another of English grammar

English is spoken throughout the world because it is soooo easy to learn! How many verb tenses are there?

important ESL writing

nancy john said...

actually english is spoken throughout the world because it is one of the most important languages and alot of countries make thier students learn it. i dont know why english is that hard to learn(probably because there are a lot of different meanings for one word) but as a native english speaker it seems easy.

diaa attia said...

The English language is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, second only to Mandarin. That English is used almost everywhere is only one of the many advantages of learning the language. This website http://preply.com/en/skype/english-native-speakers will show you the way to be a native English speaker

Learning new vocabulary is very interesting for fresh learners. who want to get command over language learning skills

Language is the only way to communicate to others in this world. Not only learning a language would help us, one must try to adhere to the ethics followed. Thanks for submitting a wonderful content in here. This was truly useful to me. Thanks :)

I think speaking a language is as important as writing it, or in whatever you do, do your best. Although it may take time to perfect speaking English, it is best to try it without the "bahala na" way of thinking.

Having students rewrite the rules in their own words is a great idea that I had never thought of. I will definitely give it a try!
