Hope you will extend it to another week.Thanks
I think you may have misunderstood. The posting of audio or video recordings of 'mandatory' pieces for at least 7 out of 10 lessons is a required condition to participate at the end of the year exam. You do not need to post any recordings before the actual lessons start, which will hopefully happen soon. What you see here is the lesson 1 thread for class D01 of last year. This thread will be moved into the archives when the lessons of this season start, and will be replaced by a new thread also named 'D01 Classical guitar lesson 01'.
It will probably be at least another week until the first lesson is posted here, and even when that happens you do not need to start studying it immediately. Just practice the lessons for at least one week before recording yourself and posting the recordings into the lesson thread.

If the note is 1/8th, it can be read as "1 and,2 and...etc".If note is quarter, or 4 quarter notes in a bar will read as 1,2,3,4.
If it is half note, the count will be one rest stroke, time duration of 1,2 count. On page 6,CORDES A VIDE, phrase begin with half note, above the half note, it is written "1e,2e", instead of "1,2".Not yet clear to me. Hope you may help me out to understand it.
You shouldn't change the way you count just because the duration of the note is different than before. I think the point is to emphasize that you should count "1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2..." all the way from the beginning to the end of the piece. If you already know how to read music and sing or play another instrument from the printed music, you probably won't need to count when you play. The purpose of counting is to establish the tempo and the rhythm, and help you with knowing when to play a note. Once you have become fluent with reading music, you won't need to count except perhaps when you come across some complex rhythmic pattern.
Also it's completely up to you whether you count with 'ands' or without them. If you find it easier to count just 1,2,3,4, and you don't have any problems timing the 1/8 notes, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't do it like that.
Hopefully this helps!
