Just read. Go back over your notes from the message or class several times. Don’t mark anything today--just refamiliarize yourself with what you’ve heard.
Be sure to also go back and read from the Bible any verses referred to in the lesson. And pay attention to cross references. If your Bible has links to other verses in the margin, skip over to those and read them as well. It will help you put the verses you are reading in context.

Remember, too, that a conversation can have many forms. Don't let the fact that a one-on-one meeting may not be possible deter you. Phone calls, email, cards, notes, letters--all these are forms of communication where you can share with others what you are learning.
