My mom just got a laptop. She's 82 and speaks French and English.
Do you know any nice and easy tutorials for Gmail, the web...?
She's been using Word a few years so she's not totally lost, but the web side of things is really new for her.

Google has a video tutorial site, TeachParentsTech.org, with a bunch of videos by Googlers explaining common computer activities.
