I try not to get too depressed about my teaching here, because between the language and the culture shock it's still… hard. But imagine coming up to your professor after a two hour lecture and asking

"hey so can we still pass the test if we just read the stuff on the website"

You did it, random student! You solved college! You go read some PDFs online, teach yourself, and I'll stay in my office, or better yet, on my couch at home with my dog. Everyone wins.
