IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Learning
What’s the difference between learning face-to-face with teachers and learning by yourself?
Learning by yourself means you’re in charge of what and how long you’ll be studying. Learning face-to-face with teachers, however, usually means that the teacher will decide the learning material and the duration of the lesson.
Do you like to learn on your own or with others?
I like to learn on my own because I can decide the subject I want to learn and work on areas which I need to improve. I don’t have to concern myself with other people’s preferences, and it’s easier to focus because there’s no one to distract me.
Do you prefer to study at home or study in other places?
At home, because it’s quiet and there’s everything I need. Sometimes I would go to a cafe to study or work but I’d have to do some preparation beforehand. And it costs money to go out, and I don’t always have enough money for that.
