Learn English With Strangers

If you haven’t already noticed, I absolutely love feel-good, happy news and try to take a few minutes a day to focus on the really amazing stuff that is going on the world.

CNA languages schools in Brazil recently launched a simple, relatively effortless and high impact new program where local students learning English are paired with American senior citizens in a nursing home via webcam to get real conversation experience.

The idea was born to give the students who can’t travel the opportunity to speak with mother tongue English speakers and to create real connections for lonely seniors, which ultimately led to beautiful friendship across generations and continents between complete strangers. Warning: you should probably get a few tissues ready and be prepared for some goosebumps!
