Imagine that you are in a classroom or a meeting. The In your opinion, which of the following is the best thing to do? -Interrupt and correct the mistake right away. -Wait until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone, and then talk to the teacher or meeting leade. -Say nothing
No one can cast a shadow of doubt on the fact that human being has the same experience like amay make mistakes when we they lecture in front of a large group of people, or at least, all we all see that the a speaker makes a mistake in their saying. An unavoidable question which always has been is that what the listeners what should do in this situation. Some people believe that saying nothing or revising the mistake at end of class is the best way. However, I think we should interrupt and correct the mistake right away. To support this, there are numerous reasons, two of which are going to be aptly depicted in the following. The main reason is that if teachers or the meeting leaders say something incorrect, it might make a big mistake for a large of people whom who listened to it, and it is better to we say our opinion in front of them in order to know the right thing.On In other words, perhaps some others may think what the speakers' speaker says is the true right and they make this mistake too in different situations. For example: , when I was a master student. , my Continuum Mechanic professor says said/ mentioned/provided the bad(wrong?) example about the behavior of Composite material. He said if this type of material gets under compression, they it can have good resistance. It is, not only is incorrect but also in contrast with its true behavior. I had some doubts but his talk, after a few minutes' delayminutes, I said it is was not possible to be true, ; therefore, they he thought and said it was my his fault. After the class, many students came to me and said If youif I had not did not saysaid anything, they would have thought what the teacher say said was true. The last but not least is that sometimes maybe our idea has been wrong about the problem has been wrong. And it could stay in our mind wrong for a long time if we do not say my concept our ideas in time. it is possible that other listeners have this problem too or after the ending end of the meeting or class, this problem will raise happen to/ for them. The Survey survey and study provided by a student whom who study studies Mechanical Engineering shows that about 80 percent of student questions which think the professor makes a mistake in a class is wrong because they did not pay deep attention and study. Besides; , its special result says, if successful students rarely had questioned ask professors their questionsrarely until their period of education , they would have not been most successful and taking the best score. In conclusion and based on the aforementioned ideas, not only doesare interrupting and correcting the mistake right away is the best choice, but also it hadthey have numerous benefits for us and other people as well. Finally, my suggestion to the student and other listener is every time have a different idea in the classes and lecture and be sure about it, I suggest that students confidently ask it from the speaker questions when they have a different idea in the classes to find out yourwhether their thought is true or false.
