I speak of my GMAT preparation especially the verbal section, which includes sentence correction, reading comprehension and critical reasoning. It has been amusing while studying these topics. While I have a fair grip on English language on professional grounds, I never thought of dissecting each and every word to meet the perfection standards. It gets annoying when I end up giving several mock tests to get the right answers, but the beauty of this process, of analyzing each sentence to the correct grammatical standards, makes me more confident to present a situation in an appealing way.
I have my goal to pursue PhD in near future definitely with am aim to bring a change with new methodologies. I think that if I take my GMAT preparation sincerely not only to crack the test but also truly sharpen my written and understanding skills, so that it helps me convey my research topics precisely. I have always believed in expressing our true selves to the fullest and such practice would help me demonstrate my thought process thoroughly in my dissertations and papers. And if I manage to do it the correct way, I will be able to get the right audience for my research work, and the outcome of the entire study programme becomes fruitful and meets the desired goals.
However, with the above example, I’ve come to an understanding that our approach toward learning any subject should be focused toward improving ourselves in a way, so that we could express our innermost desires finely through that channel of the subject. Communication is what holds all of us together, and if delivered avoiding misinterpretations and misunderstanding, it only strengthens the bonds between us. No learning should be tedious. The world is a big one, and each one of us can have our own room to refine our expression of speech through the process. We must welcome everything that is new and that challenges our fears from expressing all that floats in our hearts 🙂
