Learning is the lifelong process which starts from birth and ended with a last day of life. A person continues to learn many things from their daily routines. There are two vital methods of learning – either learning from books or through experience. It has become a debatable issue that whether learning through books is the best one or experience is the more effective way of learning. But, I strongly believe that experience plays a very important or significant role in learning and this essay will explain its importance.
To begin with, experience means the practical knowledge which a common man achieves while performing their day to day activities. Practical knowledge helps us in more deeply understanding than a theory which we learn from books. As well as experience is not limited up to any extent or any field its varied from activities to activities. Furthermore, we remember things longer through practical experience and with positive interactions. To go more in deep, Experience assists us to become more socially active, instead of studying materials in an isolated condition.
In addition, with practical experience, we become able to share personal thoughts with others and gain more and more knowledge. Further, books provide only basic knowledge of the topic as well as basic techniques of selling of a product, marketing and distribution whereas these techniques can be implemented only if u have the better experience in respective field. Additionally, with the practical experience, we become able to make decisions more quickly. Because of having a practical experience, we can handle critical situations effortlessly.
To sum up with this, we can conclude that whatever we learn through books are often forgotten but we never forget our first-hand experience.
