Yesterday was our first class day here at UEA. After three days of touring the city and working hard at enjoying ourselves, there was a definite “vacation’s over” mood in the air, though we were all excited for our classes.
All of the class sizes at the international summer school are very small – I think the biggest class has 18 or so people – but mine, as it turns out, is the smallest, with just three students. Yup, three. At my university in Canada, the smallest class size I’ve ever had is about 150 for lectures, with seminar classes having around 20 students. Having just three of us in the class should make for an interesting new experience, especially on field trips.
After a brief introduction to the course, the professor let us go early that day. One of my class friends and I hit up the library, bookstore, and then spent the afternoon in the city, walking around and going to the Norwich Market.
