On-Line Audio-Visual learning !

My teaching of the French language is OnLine/Audio-Visual:

1- to prevent the spread of Covid-19

2- to protect the environment

3- to give more chance to the learners to engage in the listening/talking pair of skills usually lagging behind the reading/writing skills. 

I am a native speaker with more than 20 years of experience as a teacher and a Master’s in teaching foreign languages. I specialize in pronunciation (not accents) and advance levels (humanities).
