Q: You should take notes?

What I would find nonsense is that most students would try to take notes during the class, it actually district them from listenting and understanding what the teachers say. Often time they end up with a lot of notes but without undersanding the course well enough as it should be. 

 

On one of the jobs I worked, my boss asked us to go to meeting with him, he was mad that I did not even take notes. He was simply asking us how it went in the exhibition and I simply found it was unecessary to bring notes to answer his question and found it unecessary to take notes instead of giving my attention of hearing what he says.

 

I took notes, but not during the time while I should give my attention to listen and understand the important parts.

 

I may take note after the class, after the meeting, or when the speaker paused a bit which enable me to write the important parts down for help me remember them better. But not everything is worth taking notes, it depends on the content and your memory.

 

What do you think?

No, you don't need to take notes. You know everything. The boss should be taking notes from you.

Students need to take notes. As exams are at least one month apart from one another, you can not tell me that they will remember the material taught 30 days prior to the exam. Hell, my students barely remember the material from class to class. Notes are important to students to remind them of the important material that was covered so that they can study for their exams. Most people are not as fortunate as you with your excellent recall memory. 

 

That is not to say that students need to write everything into a notebook and copy every PPT word for word. Most Chinese students have very bad note taking skills. The concept of editing their thoughts and information is difficult for them.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
