Rewatching don't understand: "another name for a type in C# is a class"

A class is a blueprint for when an instance of that class is created. String, int, doubles, floats, booleans are all datatypes. So how can type and class be used interchangeably when they are two different things? Did I miss something?

I believe I understand data types were a concept introduced into programming. But no matter what they are still a class because that how they were declared. The only confusing part would be then how you can set a type of class to a different value and not an instance of that class? But I believe that whole another discussion? So are my first two sentences correct?
