In the last decade, university institutions have been increasing, which demand from the teaching staff a greater offer of courses where technology is effectively incorporated into teaching. Critical studies published today, relating to the use of different technological tools in conjunction with language teaching, repeatedly contain the terms "distance learning" or "online course", as well as the terms "hybrid" or "combined" for make reference to the same model, to the same type of course. This study distinguishes two terms to refer to two models of courses: "hybrid at a distance" and "face-to-face ALAO". The oral dexterity of 132 participants was evaluated through pre and post-tests with the purpose of investigating the mastery of this skill with students enrolled in different teaching models and different semesters (first and third semester). The results of ANOVA indicate a statistically significant difference between the two models "hybrid at distance" and "face-to-face ALAO" in the first semester of Spanish in the overall score of the examVersant and in fluency favoring the students of the "hybrid distance" model.
