Chinua Achebe started school at St Philips Central School, Apkakaogwe Ogidi in 1936. He was asked to proceed to the religious class where pupils engaged in singing and sometimes dancing of the catechism, chanting of English rhymes, and general entertainment.

• Student-to-colleagues social success

There are also students who build good relationships with teachers, but not with their colleagues at class nor they get good grades in different classes.

IGCSE is expanded as International General Certificate of Secondary Education. It is a popular international certification for the secondary school. It is also referred to as O-Level or year 11 or fifth form in respective schools and countries, prior to proceeding to advanced levels such as the sixth form or A-level or 12 &13 year or even the pre-university studies.
IGCSE was previously University of CIE, Cambridge International Examinations, in 1988. In fact, since 1858, University of Cambridge is the UK local examination board.

Motivation to study is when you have the eagerness to study with your desire to have great marks. Eagerness to study comes when you have a future vision about your life and where do you want to be after graduation from college, without having such eagerness, studying could be challenging.
A recent study showed that students who have a future vision so that they know what life looks like after graduation are more motivated than those who don't have a future vision. Here are some points to motivate yourself to study:
1. Know your destination: while studying at high school, give yourself some time to search for colleges that you feel that they are appealing to you so that you can have a better view for your choice to know what is the college that better suits you. Knowing your destination by knowing the best college that suits you will motivate you to study more at high school and will make you have better grades.
2. Live in your future: you can apply this on any school year. ...
Note taking can be distracting at the best of times. Listening to the teacher or lecturer and trying to concentrate and understand what he is saying is difficult enough. Then trying to scribble down copious notes which you then can't decipher afterwards just compounds the problem.
If the subject matter is partly visual - maybe some complex formulas on a whiteboard or a scientific experiment which cannot be drawn easily, then the task of writing down and visualizing the session is double difficult.
If you have some form of sensory disability or learning difficulty then the challenge just got even harder. Then there are the foreign language students who come from Asia to study in the UK. A Glaswegian or Tyne side accent may be quite difficult for them to understand and quite unlike the English that they have been taught in their home country. So for them the challenge of comprehension and note taking is similar.
For the last twenty years students with a specific learning disability have ...
Common English Grammar mistakes:Well, you can start by reading through this post to see which common grammar mistakes resonate with you the most. (It’s okay — we’re all guilty of at least one.) Make a mental note to avoid that mistake in the future, or heck, just bookmark this page to remind yourself of them over and over (and over) again.
Apostrophes aren’t difficult to use once you know how, but putting them in the wrong place is one of the most common grammar mistakes in the English language. Many people use an apostrophe to form the plural of a word, particularly if the word in question ends in a vowel, which might make the word look strange with an S added to make it plural.
Apostrophes indicate possession — something belonging to something or someone else.
To indicate something belonging to one person, the apostrophe goes before the ‘s’. For instance, “The girl’s horse.”
To indicate something belonging to more than one person, put the apostrophe ...
~~Learning a language involves learning new words. The more words you know the more you will understand and the better you will be able to communicate.
It is said that in order to “get by” in a foreign language you need a vocabulary of at least 120 words.
Read: The more words you are exposed to the better vocabulary you will have. When you read and see words you don’t know first try to guess the meaning from the sentence/story and then look the word up. Read and listen to things you are interested in. There are lots of graded/guided readers available and even manga/comics.
Play with words: Do puzzles, crosswords, play scrabble etc. Many of these are available online.
Themes: Focus on a single theme per week, the mind naturally links connected words together.
Use context: Research shows that the vast majority of words are learned from context. Pay attention to how words are used, the sentences etc.
Review: When you learn new words recycle them (use them again and again) this ...
