Video Chats Connect American Seniors With Brazilian English Learners [Video]
Ad agency creates touching exchanges between English learners and lonely US seniors.
Advertising agency FCB Brasil partnered up with CNA language schools to create possibly the most ingenius language/culture exchange project ever – using a computer program to connect CNA English students in the city of Liberdade, Brazil, to retired elders of the Windsor Park Retirement Community in Chicago.
The “Speaking Exchange” project brings together two different problems to create one big solution, providing companionship to a group of senior citizens while giving English learners a chance to practice live with English speakers (the best way to learn any language). All it takes is a video chat.
