Your teacher hopes you will enjoy the process of learning and informs you that this
process is a two-sided job. We will need to work together as a team. Our cooperation is what
makes the process work in a unified form. For that purpose, you are welcome to ask for my
help whichever time you need it, as long as it is in an academic context. Please bear in mind
that the type of this course is a lecture and that means that you do not have applied work in class
that demands of you to work hard for your evaluation, but that does not necessarily mean that
you will not receive academic in-class applied work as it would be mandatory for you
sometimes to understand the course materials. I wish you a good start and a fruitful year.

Welcome to my lectures 
