This will be an interactive course and you will have plenty of opportunity to build your confidence in speaking.

What do I need to bring to the first session?

ACRES' online courses will be taught in real time using the video platform Google Meet, supported by other online resources. To ensure you get the most out of the course and can fully participate in the sessions you will interact with your tutor and other students through speaking, listening and the chat function, as well as being able to see each other via the video links, though you can turn off your camera and microphone at any time.

You will therefore need to have access to either a laptop, computer or portable device (eg tablet or phone) (this ideally needs to be less than 5 years old), with a camera / webcam and microphone, as well as a good broadband / Wi-Fi connection.

Though it is not essential, you may choose to create a separate email account for your online learning (preferably Gmail which is most compatible with Google Meet). This will give you the added security to allow you to share your email address with your tutor and other students on the course to enhance your learning experience, without disclosing your personal information.

At the start of the course and before each lesson your tutor will send you an invitation with a link to join the class and any further information including resources and equipment you will need for the lesson.

How much extra study or practice is involved?

You are advised to practise new words and phrases between classes.

What do previous students say?

What are the next steps within this subject with ACRES?

Look out for more online short courses in the New Year.
Maria will be teaching Spanish for Beginners in Ticehurst village hall from January on Monday evenings.

What are the future steps beyond ACRES?
