I assume this was for some sort of police job?
When a suspect "breaks" during questioning, it means he stops with his lying/denying and confesses the truth.
Student or Learner
Please make the following in red clear for me.
When I left language school, it was off to interrogation school where Jim was an instructor. In interrogation school, you spend most of your time on two things: approaches, or how to get someone to "break"; and questioning, or how to get their information.
The first just seems to mean "I went to" interrogation school, or is there any other meaning? And what does "break" mean in the context?
Thank you for the answer.
I'm still confused about "it was off." Does "be off" there mean "leave or depart", or some other thing? Then why is the subject "it"?
It was off - This informal usage means something like The situation was such that then I went off ...
