What does it mean by "I'm crashing this course now" What does it mean by "I'm crashing this course now" And could you make a sentence by using "Sit on"(When you take a class that you didn't really register for)

I am not clear what, "I'm crashing this course now" means. Maybe a bit of context would make it clearer. There is an expression - to take a crash course meaning to take an accelerated course. I suppose it might mean that they are speeding through the class. It could also mean that they are failing as in "crashing out". You can sit in on a class if you are not registered, but you find the subject interesting. An observer might sit in on a class to asses the quality of the teaching. So the expression is "sit in on"

By analogy to "crashing a party," here "crashing a course" means attending without being registered.
