Did you see the CNA - Speaking Exchange project?
"An innovative new language exchange program is helping Brazilian students practice their English while brightening up the often solitary lives of elderly American retirees. The Speaking Exchange project, which was developed by FCB Brazil, was implemented by CNA school in Liberdade, Brazil, where students were paired up with seniors at Windsor Park Retirement Community in Chicago. In a video showing how the program works, the pairs carry on conversations via video chat, discussing their families, hobbies, pasts and futures - and forming special and unlikely bonds in the process."
I saw it and thought "wow, that's incredible!" I couldn't let to share with you, guys.
oww man, it's amazing. I think the seniors must feel alone much times, and it's a perfect solution.
Muito boa a propaganda, usaram o apelo à emoção, mas está valendo. Confesso que caiu um cisco no olho com a combinação música mais as pessoas interagindo.

I saw this video, it is excellent! The students can practice their English and the seniors have someone to talk. This experience can be very good.
Exactly. That was a great idea, both for the students and seniors as to CNA's marketing.
yupiiii! Initiatives like this leave us happy. Seniors + teenagers = everything to work.
Yes, I saw too and I guessed so interesting! I dont know if to participar is necessary to study in CNA.. Does somebody know?
Probably you need to be a CNA study to join the program. That's such a wise initiative. I wonder if there's some program on website who promotes this live chat between people from differente countries who wants to develop their fluency on a foreign language.
I couldn't be more proud of the initiative! It's just so emotional and amazing at the same time.
absolutely beautiful... The best marketing campaign of the CNA. But i miss portuguese subtitle for people who doesn't know english at all.
Wow!!! It is incredible... It shows how technology can be used to make us better people.
Tks a lot!
I think it is brilliant. If we could bring it together with Duolingo, it would be a great step forward.
