WAYS OF LEARNING A SUBJECT
Some people think that they can learn subjects themselves easily. On the other hand some of them understand the subjects better with a teacher. In my opinion, both learning ways have some advantages and disadvantages. For me, it is hard to say that one of them is the best.
In my view, people who are self-confident and really smart can learn the lessons by studying themselves. There is no need to go to school for them. But people who are not very keen on working and not willing to study very much must be forced by a teacher. Unless a teacher helps them to understand the subjects, they cannot be successful at any lesson. Of course, If a person can understand everything easily on his/her own, he/she doesnt need someone to teach him/her.
Moreover, each learning ways can be useful in different situations. As an example, there are some subjects which can be learned without going to school and which can not be. For me, history is a lesson which I can study at home. Because it needs only memorization. However it is difficult for me to understand maths with studying myself. Because I am not able to understand the logical explanations of some questions.
In conclusion, both benefits of learning themselves and with a teacher depend on the characteristics of people and properties of the lessons.
