Open up your learning process to others for your future

“Dialogue is really aimed at going into the whole thought process and changing the way the thought process occurs collectively.”— David Bohm


You have already learned to some extent, and you want to deepen your learning.

▼In this context

Learning tends to be closed. It is difficult to deepen your understanding only by yourself.

• Knowledge a person has is limited.
• It is difficult to notice your lack of understanding.
• There is little opportunity for meeting people who share similar interests with you.


Share your learning process and collaborate with others to deepen your and others’ learning.

• Make friends or rivals who will work with you.
• Share your results at the present stage and get some feedback before you finish it.
• After collaborating with others, persevere with utmost effort.
