    hi every1, i think one needs both a a good teacher as well as ones own self to ha an aspiring life and attain success.we must learn certain aspects of life through our elders may it be your relatives,your brother,or may be your even can be a neighbour.the other option for you is to learn from yourself from what the things are surrounded by you,the things you see.the things you perform,the things which otherrs perform etc.

    Hi everybody! I think when we study something new, if we have a good guide, we will go to the right direction than only by ourself. When we want to study new lesson. We have find in many sources such as internet, book, people...But we cant be sure that our decision is true or false. At that time, we listen to a good teacher, who have a good knowledge about that field. They will guide us so the goal we go will shorter and we will have alot of useful advices. So our vision will be clear and we will comprehend easily. So having a good teacher is very important to every student.

    Hi every one! Our Vietnam has an idiom "you could not succeed without teacher". this idiom was summarized by time. Personally, i think it is right in many aspect of life. when we were a baby, our parents were the best teachers, they taught us how to say hello when meet each different people est. At that time if without guiding of parents, we could become like monkeys. Ok, Come back to main topic today, i think like some comments above that if we have good teachers who guide us is much better than we do by ourself. For example, to start learning a new lesson, if you learn by yoursefl could take a day or two days, but it only take 45 minutes in class time of you with teaching of your teacher and of course our teacher wil give us many good experiences to understand this lesson.

    in my point of view, it would be more good if we study English with a guidance of a teacher, because she/he can directly show to us if we make mistaken. but it doesn't meant that we don't study anymore if there is not teacher guide us. the best way for me is to have a high motivation as an independent learner, and if we have a problem with that we can directly consult to the teacher. hopefully be good answer...

    Before i talk more, i would like to remain us about a proverb. it said "experience is the most valuable teacher". So, whatever the case, surely we need teacher. but the problem is sometimes the languages (words) of our teacher are hard to understand. so the teachers must use the easiest words in order to make the students understand well
