Monday evening I have my first telephone tutorial of this year's OU course*. All you OU-ers back in the UK, how lucky you are each month to sit in a library or classroom somewhere and have a conventional lesson.I believe you can also attend other tutorials from other courses if you so desire. Spare a thought for us expats; not only do we have to pay more than twice as much as you, we have nowhere to hide when asked a question over the phone. You lot can avert your eyes when the tutor looks around prior to selecting a questionee; you can drop a pen or look down at your doodles and hope you are not the one about to stutter that you don't really know the answer.
Over a phone there is nowhere to go. It is just you and some voices and I believe for this forthcoming lesson there is also a piano.
this *is my course.
