    Gaining a recognized position & earning incredibly high salary in your field of expertise are most people’s dreams. To pursue these payoffs, workers work hard and students study hard. However, achieving that goal in a decent manner is far from easy. As a result, some people use their own talent and their endeavor, whereas some choose shorter and less transparent ways.
    Recently, the IELTS community has solicited a wave of anger for some highly respected trainers whose names are so familiar to us. Some of these instructors either exaggerated or falsified their IELTS certificates to deceive the public. To make matters worse, when the information of these wrongdoings leaked, the convicted opted for making excuses, beating around the bush or giving no explanation instead of apologizing to their learners for their misbehavior.
    Due to these recent scandals, it got me thinking that whether these wrongdoers had once thought about possible responsibilities they would bear if someone detected it one day. In addition, these scandalous events could have higher chances of becoming stigmas which are hard to fade away for many years to come.
    As for psychological reasons, we people usually face the dilemma of prioritizing between existing monetary benefits and our code of conduct – a so-called “work ethics”.
    Let’s join us and share some of your thoughts about this topic!!!
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

        In your expertise, can you share with us about case studies of people who are willing to take risks and ignore their work ethics to achieve their goals?
        Being an angel bears a striking difference to being an evil. Which one is your preference, sticking to your belief system of doing the right thing or pursuing your goals at all costs?
        Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, offenders are involved in illegal acts due to their family burdens such as cases of prostitution or petty crimes. Do you agree or disagree with this idea?

     ********************************************************************************************************************

     

    Covid-19 sure is a bad disease, but the pandemic it brings also comes with many positive and competitive things including surviving, adapting and self-studying.
    Self-study is a type of learning which requires self-motivation, self-evaluation, self-discipline, trustworthy materials, and most importantly, patient. Everybody has their own ways of learning. One's crucial learning traits could be evaluated by the so-called VARK questionnaire that based one 4 crucial traits namely Visual (learning by others' demonstration), Aural (learning by listening), Read/write (learning by reading guides or information), kin-esthetic (learning by doing and experimenting).
    Further information regarding VARK can by found at: https://vark-learn.com/the-vark-questionnaire/
    Most of the time we study by ourselves, we have no one helping us and guide us through the journey properly which could potentially overcome by mediating (join the talk for further information). Self-studying is not only about learning and advancing by yourself but also when you try adopting a new habit, self-studying can help you progress faster.
    So what is self-studying and how to self-study efficiently? Download Discord now and join us this Sunday afternoon!
    Questions to ponder:
    1. How often do you self-study? What are your learning traits and how do you evaluate your own?
    2. When did you start self-studying and how hard was it? What is/was your inspiration for self-study and how can you keep it?
    3. There are people stating that we do not know whether we could survive this pandemic so it is pointless to learn something new and adopt more habits. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this? And why do we even bother learning these days?
    4. How often do you meditate, how does meditating help you and as you advance into meditating, how do you manipulate it and what do you bend it for?
    5. Languages, just like every other skills, requires patient and efficient effort. How did you learn languages in general and English in specific. What advice would you give for those wandering and/or lost on their learning journeys?
