don't think you're supposed to actually deal with the class called 'type'.
I assume you're referring to typecasting variables.
What it means when it says 'type()' is, for example,
str( ), int( ) etc.

Take the following example.
 >>> a = 2
 >>> print a
 >>>print 'your number is '+a
TypeError: cannot concatenate str and int objects.
 >>>print 'your number is '+str(a)
your number is 2

note that you could just do
 >>> print 'your number is %s.' % a
your number is 2.

that will take care of the type conversion for you.
