This module usually includes a mix of face-to-face and online tutorials. Depending on where you live, the mix will vary. In some places, we may replace face-to-face tuition with more online sessions or telephone conferencing. How and where we hold tutorials will depend on the distribution of students taking the module in your area. Although you’re not obliged to attend any of these, we strongly encourage you to take part, as they will provide you with plenty of opportunities to speak and listen to Spanish.
