Elderly Americans teach English to Brazilian youth via internet

Joining elderly Americans with Brazilian youth in a communicational Exchange: learn a language, improve conversation skills, interact and lighten people's worlds through connection. Actually both sides are mentors, almost effortlessly, by giving what they already know/have. Great initiative!

Thanks Ruiwen, agree that a two-way mentorship is a great thing. Exchanges are best when there's the both the possibility to contribute and the opportunity to learn.
