- 1st session: Orientation. During this session, you will plan your next sessions with your tutor according to your availability.
- 12 exchange sessions (1 hour each): To practice with your tutor what you have learned independently, to practice oral interaction with your tutor, to complete oral assignments and to ask any questions you may have.
