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

Actually no i have not created a study group before. But, i would like to be in a group one day, because i feel its a useful way of studying. Plus, its more fun to study with a group than being alone .

I've never created group study but i think it's a great way to motivate each other and to make us more smart.
My tips :
- for making group study four or five people is enough because more than 5 become more crowd and hard to get focus on.
- Consistent, if we had make a deal to make group discussion then we decide the day and time we will meet. Be consistent to do the group discussion. Sometimes only on the beginning we have to do then later become stuck and finish.

Hello, I haven't created a study group, not a stric group but I had been in a lot of group depending of the assignment and if we want to get a higher degree we used to have meetings in differents places. A few years ago we didn't have cellphone's and we get focused on what we had to do, not as these days how Mujtabaaman says, were all the students have mobile cellphone's and they get easily distracted
