I have been teaching for more than 15 years. Not only am I a certified teacher but I am also a linguist and a translator. I have lived and worked abroad for many years. I am an expat specialist and a language expert.
I know perfectly well and understand the challenges of learning a new language and the difficulties of settling abroad.
Valerie Besnard | Founder of Languageonline and course designer
Fully dedicated to education, I founded Languageonline to train people all over the world in English and French. I chose to teach via a virtual platform because it is a flexible, convenient and interactive means to learn a language efficiently. I provide individual support and I also offer positive encouragement and reinforcement to keep the learners focused and motivated.
