It has begun

Knock knock knock.

No reply.

I get up and open the door. There is a lost-looking first-year hunched nervously outside the office.

"I was wondering if you can tell me where my French tutorial is..."
"Classes don't actually start until next week, I think. Tutorials not until the week after that. And French is one floor higher. This is linguistics."
"Oh. Well can you tell me which tutorial I'm in, then?"
"For French?"
"Um... no."
