Is frequent repetition a good way to study?

Good morning! Kitos. Thank you for checking my essays :slight_smile:

Topic: Memoorization of information by frequent repetition (rote learning) plays a role in many education systems. Does the usefulness overweigh the limitations?

Frequent repetition is an effective learning method, which are playing an increasing role in some subjects in China or other developing countries. There is a view that students should acquire knowledge by this way because of its various advantages, while some people argue against it. This essay will discuss the issue from both perspectives.

It is true that rote learning brings students numerous benefits. To begin with, individuals may get higher scores if they memorize the contents of literatures repeatedly. It is especially efficient to obtain a great deal of knowledge during a short period. In addition, people will have better performances in some courses through this learning method. Linguistics, like English, is a case in point. We must practice it continually to reach an ideal level.

Conversely, there are a lot of weaknesses of rote learning. In the first place, we will forget something of the knowledge after a long time. For instance, we can seldom remember the details, like names or times, of history clearly. Moreover, it is so inflexible that makes study without interesting. As a result, students will feel tired when they meet long text. Last but not least, rote learning is a way that lacks of actual application. We cannot understand the knowledge deeply without actual application. For example, we need not only to memorize the formulas, but also to practice usually in mathematic.

In summary, although there are some profits of frequent repetition, it seems that the downsides overweigh the benefits. As far as I am concerned, it is not the best approach to learn a good many of curriculums.
