AN EAST END teacher has taken his French lessons online.

James Innes, who teaches at Dalmarnock Primary School, launched his virtual French lessons on YouTube more than a month ago.

His channel on the social media website has lots of features to help parents who are home-schooling because of lockdown restrictions.

He said: "The channel has already got over 6,000 views! It's been amazing to see children across Scotland (and further afield) engage with the series."

He added: "It's wonderful to see children developing a love of the French language and culture from home.

"My hope is to keep the videos running beyond the lockdown so teachers can use them as lesson starters when we get back to normality."
