We know that when you are learning English, it is very important to practise speaking. For this reason, you may attend two face-to-face classes a week, at the time designated by your Official School of Languages. That way, the tutor can help you monitor your progress.
The tutorial sessions are aimed basically at developing communication skills, particularly oral expression and interaction.
As this is a distance-learning course, it is not compulsory for you to attend the tutorials in order to complete the course successfully, but we strongly recommend that you make the most of these classes as they are a very useful tool that will help you achieve the course's learning objectives.
To find out which group you are in and the tutorial times, contact your Official School of Languages.
