thanks a lot

yes i have created a study group with 3 people. It's quite effective to get focus on. We make the motivation to study better and if we have assignment or any problem, we'll exchange together and it's solved faster. there are some tips for u to create study group: Make a decision about the place and time to meet. Before meeting, you have to prepare what would we discuss? it will be better if you can come up with some idea for the problem.

no,i haven't been in study group before,but i think it great way to study for tasks!

I think study group may waste my time and make less concentration but if it’s organized well this could lead to having good results and if I decide to make study group, my tips will be, firstly The meeting should be at the same time every week to feel more seriously. secondly it should be not more than four persons in order to be more focus and finally it shouldn’t take more than two hours. Study group may help in exchange point of view and get knowledge to new ideas of others .

Pls is there any mistake in writing ?

No, i haven't
And i think it is not good idea. It may waste your time. In addition, you may not concentrate when you study in a group

Yes, I took part in a group for while. There was nobody in charge, we decided what we were going to read and we had meetings regularly. The meetings lasted for hours, like three hours.

Yes. I had. The tips include:
- Having a number of 2 individuals and above.
- Having a meeting point or venue.
- Choosing time and duration of meeting.
- Deciding on days of meeting.
- Having someone as a moderator or coordinator.
- And having some rules serving as do and don't for the group.

Yes, I created a study group when I was in college, but it was difficult because everyone has different times. I think it is very important for you to study with friends or people with whom you feel comfortable, in this way learning is more meaningful and you can be more constant in your process.

hi can you please tell me if my writing is correct

Hello yoyoraw

I'm afraid we don't correct users' texts. If you have a question about a specific word or part of a sentence, we're happy to help you with that. 

But I can say that your text is quite clear and the only error I spotted was 'its', which should be 'it's'.

All the best
