Activities for a first face to face tutorial

This collection of ppt screens were used at a first face to face tutorial early in the presentation. Most of the activities were designed by the course team. I added the map of Spain with all its provinces because it is more visual and opens up the conversation. The song (Badalona) was used to practise linking words together, to appreciate the rhythm of the language and to impart information on the culture of the area.
