Helping our senior citizens by offering them ideal job
As we all know the elderly have infinite knowledge,but there bodies won't allow them to socially active as before. Also they have the time and wisdom to talk with people, by talking they get out of loneliness and struggle.
On the other hand, practicing speaking is the best way to learn a language. Now as you might imagine,how wonderful it is if we get the elderly in need to talk with language learners.
Here in China, English learners pay quite big money for the opportunity to talk with native English speaker online,just because they want a more efficient way of learning English.
What if we create such a platform,where elderly in UK ,US and Australia,etc, can teach Chinese English via Skype by simply talking. Chinese will be willing to pay a lot of money,that as a result,elderly earn money for their own healthcare and daily grocery,even more than that.
It helps Chinese learn English faster, alleviates government and children the burden of supporting aging parents,etc.
Share your thoughts,let's see if it is possible.
