Sorry, but I laughed about the relative who keeps having a go at you. I guess it all depends on your personality. Mine is a bit contrary, and that's how I ended up with a science degree.
I vaguely suggested I might study science, but what made my mind up was having family being doubtful about whether I could do it or not. ("Oh, why don't you do social science or literature?") So I was then absolutely determined to do what people suggested I couldn't.
Encouragement is good, but just let other people's doubts make you stronger!
It's totally okay, Mona. Hours later, I was so entertained by what s/he had done but it's good now. A Science degree? Wow! That's absolutely impressive.
You're right about the last thing you said. People's doubts should be one of my motives to pursue my English degree. Thanks, Mona, for that tidbit. It made me feel better just now. à§ã€³ ï¼¾ à±ª ï¼¾ ã€µà¨
Give me some more advice, Master! (((o(*ï¾Ÿâ–½ï¾Ÿ*)o))) Just joking xD
==Advantages and Disadvantages â€“ Why Choose Distance Learning?== ãƒ½(ï¿£Ï‰ï¿£(ï¿£Ï‰ï¿£ã€ƒ)ã‚
The main advantage of distance learning is that it allows you to fit your learning around your work and home life.
*You can usually also set your own pace of study. *It is your decision as to when and where you study. *It doesn't matter where you live â€“ you can gain a degree from anywhere in the world. *As with a full-time degree, students may find that they gain useful, transferable skills, such as planning and research. *A distance learning course often costs less than a full-time degree.
The downside is that you will not enjoy the conviviality of being on a campus and rubbing shoulders with fellow students on a daily basis.
*Loneliness and feelings of isolation should be avoided however by frequent online contact with tutors and taking part in virtual forums, virtual help groups and discussion rooms. *Distance learning providers usually offer dedicated support to their online or distance learning students.
