Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Would you prefer to take courses taught by professors with whom you have already had other classes during your past years of study, or would you prefer to take courses with professors whose classes you have never taken before? Why? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Which kind of professor would you like to choose? The one whose classes you have taken before or the one who is new to you? This can be a hard question as students receive higher education. Different people differ on this subject. Personally, I would like to go for the one whose classes I have never taken before. Here come my reasons. To begin with, it will contribute to my learning if I decide to turn to a completely new professor. A new decision can lead to more opportunities. To be specific, I am more likely to encounter a better professor. For instance, I took a course named accounting in my junior year, which was taught by a strict professor. With all due respect, her teaching style was a little rigid and made me uncomfortable. So it goes without saying that I just got a B in that course. Next year, I chose a different professor who taught microeconomics. That's an abstract and tough course for me, I have to say. Nonetheless, this new professor really did good in simplifying complex concepts, at the same time being so sweet. Therefore, I learned microeconomics pretty well and got an A. If I stuck to the previous professor, I would not be able to have this opportunity and experience. No exaggeration, choosing the latter brings more chances. What's more, it is conducive to learning how to get along with different people and honing my social skills. After graduation, I am supposed to meet lots of different people every day. How to deal with people can be a problem. Choosing different professors means getting to know their personalities and preferences. This really prepares me for my future career and helps me better understand various people. It is for the future's sake. Some may still argue about the advantages of choosing known professors. There is no denying that. But it is my firm belief that making a different choice will benefit you more.
