中高生の基礎英語 in English Topic 2 Day 4
Which do you prefer, studying alone or studying with other people?
Jacob: Study together? Well...
Nicole: Which do you prefer, studying alone or studying with other people?
Jacob: Actually, I prefer studying by myself. I can focus on studying.
Nicole: Oh, so you can concentrate better.
Jacob: Exactly. I like being with other people, but if I study by myself, I can finish more work. What about you, Nicole?
Nicole: I prefer to study with others. It's more fun and interesting. Studying by myself is sometimes boring. And I can ask questions if I need to.
Jacob: That's true.
Nicole: Also, my friends can quiz me. That helps me remember important information.
Jacob: Ah, that makes sense.
Nicole: And by helping each other, you can finish the work more quickly!
Jacob: You know what? That sounds great! Let's do it.
I don't have to worry about other people.
If I do something by myself, I feel proud.
For example, studying Japanese, studying how to do comedy, or practicing music.
When I am alone, it's quiet.
If I study at my own speed, I can take breaks when I want to.
Other people can sometimes help but I work better alone.
