T: In the last period, we learned how to make decisions by comparing information. Comparison is everywhere. When we say, Wei Hua’s English is better, Jessica’s the best basketball player in our school, we are making comparisons. By making comparisons with others, we can find the weaknesses and strong points of ourselves. That’s true to the study method.
S: I compared my method of studying with that of my deskmate. First, he never studies for long hours. It seems he is always free, but often gets high marks. But I used to sit and study for long each time. Second, he reviews what he learned in the class immediately after class. But I never do that. Later on, I will form the habit of reviewing what have learned as soon as possible. Third, my deskmate told me that many students do not reach their goals because they set them too high. He said his goal is to learn something new every day.
