LESSON 5

The longest lesson in the world


Zsofie Gyamati: I am Zsofie Gyamati. I am 19 years old and I attended the longest lesson. It was in Hungarian grammar and literature.

This lecture was the idea of one of my classmates, because on Thursdays we used to have two Hungarian literature lessons after one another, which seemed to be very, very long. So his idea was: 'If we can study two lessons after one another, why couldn't we study [for] 24 hours?' So he arranged the whole lesson in our high school.

The rules were that during the whole 24 hours there couldn't be any kind of break in talking. That was one of the rules. The other was that, of course, nobody could sleep, so that was very important. If somebody had to go to the toilet, I think, it couldn't be longer than two minutes. So it wasn't very strict.

I think, everybody in the class, still now thinks that it was very good and it was worth to do. I think it was very special, very funny.
