The point here is to focus on the correct use of the tense form of the verb to describe on going things. ‘As something happens, the other thing is happening’ brings out the on - going nature of the context in proper perspective

A) As foreign-language learning moves online, the paradigm that, to speak a foreign language, we need to converse with a native speaker is becoming --- A is the best among the lot, as per the explanation above

B) With the learning of a foreign language moving online, the paradigm that we need to converse with a native speaker to speak a foreign language becomes --- ‘becomes’ is more used for daily happenings, or universal happenings, than for ongoing happenings

C) With foreign-language learning moving online, conversing with a native speaker to speak a foreign language, which is the paradigm, is becoming – 'which' referring to the language is fatal

D) Because the learning of a foreign language moves online, the need to converse with a native speaker to speak a foreign language is the paradigm, which has become --- The present perfect is out context
E) As foreign-language learning moves online, the paradigm, which is we need a native speaker in order to speak a foreign language, has become - same as in D

In option A, the phrase "to speak a foreign language" is placed within commas. Doesn't this mean that the phrase now is a non essential modifier?

Is the use of a comma after "that" correct in the sentence?

the order can change. In other word, this is another way to write A. "the paradigm that we need to converse with a native speaker to speak a foreign language...."
