    BONNEUIL-SUR-MARNE, France – For Jacqueline Tolu, a 98-year-old French woman, and Elliot Bellman, a 20-year-old student living in his parents’ house in England, the COVID-19 pandemic upended their lives but also led to an unlikely friendship.

For the past six months, the two have been having weekly chats over Skype, brought together by a scheme called Shareami that pairs elderly people with language students. Tolu now has someone to talk to and relieve her loneliness and Bellman has an opportunity to practise his French with a native speaker. But also, they hit it off. “I was nervous meeting a new person, completely different generation, different culture, different language,” said Bellman, who is in his third year studying French, Spanish and Japanese at Britain’s Warwick University. “But as soon as I started talking to her, she’s very … easy to talk to, she’s very funny, she just keeps...
