God speaks to Moses (exodus 33:11)

The Lord speaks to Moses face to face, not by angel, not by a dream or vision but in real visible appearance clearly in plain words.
“Thus, the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friends.” Exodus 33: 11a.
God speaks to Samuel (1 Samuel 3)
God also spoke to little Samuel through audible voice during the period when there was no frequent vision. When God called Samuel, he thought it was Eli who called him, and he went to Eli three times. By the third time, Eli told him how to answer and listen to God. So, Samuel went back to lie down, and the Lord spoke to him and gave him the message.
“And the Lord came and stood forth calling as at other times, Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, ” speak for thy servant hears”. Then, the Lord said to Samuel, “Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel, at which the two ears of everyone that hears it will tingle”. 1 Samuel 3: 10-11
