FCB Brazil has partnered with CNA language school for the “Speaking Exchange” project. The project is helping Brazilian students learn English by connecting them to American seniors for face-to-face online conversations. The pilot was launched at a CNA school in Liberdale ( a district within São Paulo), and connected with seniors at the Windsor Park Retirement Community in Chicago.
The conversations are recorded, then saved to a private YouTube address where it can be evaluated by the instructor.
As you can see from the clip, the relationships between the students and seniors go far beyond simply learning a new language.
