E Lifelong learning is a very important
component of modern
education. // It makes learning much more
flexible and much easier.
// You can start studying a subject at
any time of your life.//
E When, do you think, is
the right time to receive an education?
E Yes, I agree, but there are many other subjects that are not
age-related. // What is more,
modern technology has provided us
with alternative learning environments. // With
distance-learning and internet facilities you can study a subject according to
the time available to you. //
在这种学习环境里你得非常自觉地 学习，遵守时间。// 在家学习和在课堂学习完全不同，你非得思想集中不可。//
