So….. that was harder than expected.
4 hours is a long time to sit still and listen (never mind learn), especially after a full day at work*.
After filling in a million forms and going through the details of what happens when and where, and introducing ourselves, and collecting our textbooks, and filling out yet more forms, we were taken on a whirlwind journey through the course content. It was intended as an overview, but the teacher/lecturer got carried away and gave examples and asked questions and made me (/more likely all of us) realise how rusty my knowledge is after not-quite-3 years on standby.
Also, that I am unable to explain the difference between terms** without giving examples.
* and it wasn’t even a strenuous day at work…. I hate to think about summer when it’s hot and the workshop’s full of people wanting things.
** in this case renting and leasing.
