Some students prefer classes with frequent discussions between the professor and the students with almost no lectures. Other students prefer classes with many lectures and almost no discussions. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
No one can deny there are both positive and negative aspects of classes with frequent discussions and classes with many lectures. If I were forced to choose, I would definitely say that the classes with persistent discussions are way much better than the classes full of lectures, for several reasons. I will try to examine below the specific reasons for this topic according to which I think are the most common viewpoints nowadays. To begin with, an individual's brain system has a tendency to memorize pieces of information when they physically and mentally intervene in discussion or conversation. Additionally, the average person does not experience the capacity to remember every single detail from the professor's talk while they are likely to recall most of the topics and detailed information from the discussion. I have to admit that my opinion on this matter has been profoundly influenced by my own experience. You see, I am likely to remember the lessons and theories in a European history class ,which is usually processed with a variety of discussions, more than other lecture-dominated classes. Secondly, the classes with many lectures tend to be boring for students and often make them sleepy. Drawing from my own experience, our classmates likely to sleep on the desk during a long discourse. As a result, most of the students no longer to be attracted by the lesson and lose their attendance. To sum up, I strongly believe that listening to lectures is less effective than participating in discussions. Therefore, you can suggest your professors make some discussions instead of many lectures if you think the discussion is more considerable than a lecture.
