Yes, we're once again teaching and learning remotely. It may not be the ideal way to learn a language, but it does offer some special affordances. You have more time to process things, more ways to access new material, and, of course, a recording to listen to and study from again. A sense of community can be built.

This short video offers some suggestions and strategies to prepare yourself for a term of meaningful learning.
