1. What qualities do you think a good teacher should have?

A good teacher should have good communication skills, depth of knowledge of his subject and should be unbiased towards students. He should also be able to come down to the level of student and never lose patience if the student is taking time to grasp something.

2. Who do you think can learn better? Old people or youngsters?

I think young people can learn faster, whereas old people take some time to learn something new. But as far as better is concerned both can learn equally well provided they have the interest to learn.

3. What do you think is the best age for children to go to school?

From my point of view, five years is the best age for children to go to school. third and fourth be too early and later than five would be too late. So, ideally, the best age would be around five years.

4. Do you prefer to study by yourself or with friends?

I prefer to study with friends because studying alone I get distracted very soon. Moreover, studying with friends we can share ideas and that makes study more interesting not only for me but for all.
