Soros International House (SIH) (Vilnius) is an organization whose activities are directly related to the education of adult migrants through language improving. The SMI (Senior Volunteers for Immigrant Integration) project aims to make retired people help migrants and refugees who experience greater social isolation and are more likely to be subject to the risk of social isolation. Seniors have great potential if not remaining in the labour market, at least for contributing to the welfare of society by other means, such as active citizenship and volunteering. During volunteering, elderly people can share their life and work experience with migrants and refugees, thus reducing their social isolation. The TALES@home project (Talking About Language and Emotions at home) aims to help multilingual families create a favourable atmosphere for language learning and family welfare. The project aims to create an innovative mobile application that allows parents and children to capture emotions related to the use of languages in the family. It should help to shape and strengthen positive family members’ emotions and attitudes, promote language learning and thus contribute to building family’s welfare and increasing social inclusion.
