3.Something YouWould Like toLearn 

Describesomething you would like to learn

  • Doyou anyone who has learned this? *

  • Doyour friends also want to learn this? *

 

  • Thewords "study" and "learn" do not have exactly the samemeaning.  

"Studying" is an activity that people do withthe aim of learning something. The usage of the word "to study"in English is similar to using the words, "to examine", "toanalyze", "to ponder", "to research" and "to look closely at". Itcan also simply mean, "sitting at my desk doing some kind ofschoolwork". For example, "He dislikes studying."

Students whostudy very efficiently learns quite a lot when they study. But aninefficient student does not learn the same amount even if theywork as hard as an efficient student and study for the same amountof time. 

Here are twoexamples of extremely inefficient study: If you know nothing aboutthe Greek language and I give you a page of written Greek to study,you will be able to learn only limited things even if you studythat page for 5 hours; Similarly, if you try to study a page from aPh.D. thesis in mathematics, you will learn very little because youwill understand almost nothing on the page. In other words, mostcases of "learning" involve understanding and proceed in astep-by-step manner.

"Learning"

When we"learn" something, a change takes place in the brain - we increaseor improve our knowledge or understanding.

However, some examples of "learning" only require memorization, notunderstanding. For example, one can "learn to sing a song inRussian" = "learn a song in Russian" by mimicking arecording, without understanding what the words mean.

  • Other examples of the difference between "learn"and "study" are: Babies learn a lot in their first few years oflife. For example, they learn to talk and they learn to walk. Buthave you ever seen a baby (say, a 1 year-old baby) studying?Similarly, a dog can learn how to open a door but have you everseen a dog studying?

  • Some examples of the use of "study":

study a discipline or general area -study mathematics, study engineering, study music, study art,study psychology, study international trade, studyaccountancy

study something specific - study thispage, study the stock market, study the piano (thisincludes book study as well as practical piano playing), studythis theory, study your proposal, study a photograph. We do notnormally say 'study' a practical or physical skill such as "studyswimming" or "study how to drive a car". We learn thesethings, not study them.

study for(= in order to get) a qualification - study for adegree, study for a Bachelor's degree in journalism.

study (in preparation) for a test
