Is motivation important for learning new things?
Yes, I believe motivation is key when it comes to learning new things. To be specific, when you want to learn something new outside of work or school, the only thing that will get you to learn it is your own will. You have to be determined and motivated because there isn’t any outside pressure for you to learn. I suppose that people can be motivated to learn new things by focusing on the benefits that knowledge can bring them.
What do people learn from parents and teachers respectively?
Well, since your parents are with you literally for your whole life, they have a huge influence on you. I think parents teach you how to treat others, whether they’re friends or other family members. They help shape your outlook on the world. But teachers mainly teach knowledge related to academic subjects, like language and science. They also teach you about the world and give you new perspectives.
What skills should be taught to kids before they go to school?
It seems to me that kids should be taught interpersonal skill. They need to know how to get along with other kids, even if they don’t immediately like them. In that way, they can make school a more welcome environment for all the students. They can also get the most out of their education by making friends as well as learning new things. So their parents should teach them how to be kind and considerate towards others.
In general, what skills do adults need to have?
Well, from my perspective, adults should have good communication and interpersonal skills. They need to know how to express themselves and explain what they want and expect from others. If they don’t know how to communicate properly, they could end up stepping on someone else’s toes or cause confusion. They should also know how to get along with others, whether they’re colleagues or coworkers. That’s an important skill you need for life.
What are the skills that you want to learn?
I would really love to learn some sports-related skills. Sports have never really been my cup of tea, but lately I’ve been looking for a way to keep fit and my friend recommended getting into swimming. Of course I’ve swum before, but just for kicks, never for an actual sport or anything. So I hope I can learn some swimming skills like the butterfly stroke. It would help me stay healthy and hopefully be fun as well
