Currently we teach English and French Speakers. But we have no problem to teach the other languages speakers.
Do you use the webcam for the lessons?
We don't typically use a webcam unless a child or an adult beginner is taking the lesson. We have noticed that students often have the tendency to focus more on the sounds of the language without the webcam. With the chat board, you will have some visual aid. It is more effective to concentrate on listening comprehension and gain a comfort level with recognizing the sounds. Nevertheless, if a student prefers to use the webcam, the teacher will be happy to turn it on.
