The present popular expression of the movement in favour of oral work at the expense of written takes the form of audio‐visual aids, which are now receiving much publicity, both from direct method advocates and commercial firms. Audio‐visual methods vary, but the one that has been evolved by M. Paul Rivenc and his colleagues at the Centre de Recherches et d'Etudes pour la Diffusion du Francais (CREDIF) at Saint‐Cloud, just outside Paris, is the most important, and has the official support and generous financial backing of the French Ministry of Education.
