Question: What method of learning works best for you?
1. Independent learning
The method that works best for me is independent study. The most important skill any student should learn in college is to learn by him/ herself.
When you study independently, you don’t have to catch up with fast students and you don’t have to wait for slow students. You can totally control your own speed of learning. So learning efficiency is very high.
You can enjoy academic freedom by choosing the subject that you’re interested in to learn. So you can be very absorbed in learning. And what’s more, you are always making new discoveries. Isn’t that exciting? And after you learn something without any outside help, the feeling of achievement is very strong. (114 Words)
2. Lecture class
When you go to a lecture class, you see a lot of new people, so your chances of making new friends increase. And since so many people are learning the same class, you know you’re in the right place because not all people are wrong.
The most obvious advantage of a lecture class is that there’s a teacher. And this person is the engineer of the whole class.
He or she has a clear objective in teaching and will improve the students learning efficiency by using a syllabus . So you find you learn very fast. (95 words)
3. Lab class/class trip
The primary purpose of learning is to use our knowledge and to see our learning results in real life. So if you have a lab class or class trip, you can deepen your understanding of the new knowledge, you can consolidate such new information.
When you do a lab experiment, you practice your theories and make sense of them. And when you go to a class trip, you can see the real figures in museums.
Well, seeing is believing. This method makes learning more interesting and vivid . (87 words)
Seminars usually only have a limited number of people. So you can get the personal attention that you can’t get at a lecture.
You can ask questions and answer questions. This is healthy academic interaction . And when you discuss or debate with a classmate, you can exchange ideas, communicate information, and share learning experience.
It’s always a win-win situation. (59 words)
