I guess he just expects you have already studied the language
somewhat.  My suggestion is to get a copy of SICP, which can show you
a fair bit about the Scheme dialect of Lisp.  Others here would be
better placed to recommend resources in Smalltalk.

To me, that make-dbms function is a trivial one, very easy to
understand at a mere glance.
