    Re: resilient to learning

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com, tom3!

    I fail to make sense of your phrase according to the definitions on http://www.thefreedictionary.com/resilient
    Does 'resilient' have other meanings?

    I am not a teacher.

    Re: resilient to learning

    Welcome to the forum, tom3.

    Please put the phrase into a complete sentence to give us an idea of what you want it to mean.

    Start every sentence with a capital letter.

    Re: resilient to learning

    For someone who is going to be a teacher you are particularly resilient to learning.

    Re: resilient to learning

    Thank you, but this doesn't tell us what you want it to mean.

    Is it your own sentence or did perhaps your teacher write it on your school report?

    Re: resilient to learning

    I just need to know if the sentence I wrote makes sense. Can the phrase resilient to learning be used in a sentence at all?

    Can the phrase "resilient to learning" be used in a sentence at all? Why or why not?

    Re: resilient to learning

    Resilience seems to be the wrong word. It does, however, have the general feel of pliability -- only, it has a more negative sense of resistive tension.

    For a more positive sense of pliability, you might want try amenable, adaptable or receptive.

    Re: resilient to learning

    'Resistant' would make more sense.
