It pretty much is. But as you say, there's a difference between talking about it and seeing it. Or having someone watch you and comment.

Also, and I think this is an underappreciated aspect of lessons, just following the instructor and learning the best path for handling the terrain is a huge win.

I think there are benefits to riding in a group - at least at advanced levels. For one thing, you tend to 'push' each other. (Of course I say this never having tried it )
