ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


So imagine you go to a school to learn things like math, science, and reading.

Now imagine there is another school that teaches you how to do really practical things like fixing a car, wiring a house, or cooking food. This type of school is called a tekhnikum.

At a tekhnikum, you don't just learn things from textbooks or lectures. You also get to practice doing things with your hands, which can help you get a job in a specific field.

It's like going to a school that teaches you how to be really good at doing specific jobs, instead of just learning more general stuff.
