Talk from home to overseas people learning EnglishEnglish Conversation

It has been shown that a problem for older people is having someone to talk to. This is obviously particularly the case for people who are in the country. Here is the opportunity to talk all day and be helping the person on the other end of the phone.

You can assist people in other countries wanting to speak English by volunteering to help.

You will remain at home and talk to them on the internet.

You will need a computer on the internet and connection to Skype.

The advantage to you of volunteering to help is both social and also exercising your brain. You will have read that both of these things need to be maintained to keep healthy.


We can provide tours related to your learning

If you are learning about wine making there is a tour to wineries when they are making their wine.

If you are learning history we can show you relevant tours to your study.

Many courses obviously lend themselves to experiencing relevant tours to see what you have learnt about.

Are you learning about Thai cooking. We can take you to Thailand to practice the real thing, visit the markets to see the ingredients and sample the food you love.
