    Exclamation “Learning does not finish when you leave school” Discuss the statement.

    Hello, everyone! I need some help with this essay. I wanted to know if the essay is related to the topic /and if it is not, could you share some ideas?/ and if it is grammatically correct. Thank you!


    "Learning does not finish when you leave school." Discuss the statement.

    It is well known that people never stop learning through their whole life. That is why leaving school is just another step to receiving new information using different methods. Nowadays, people find more and more creative ways to educate themselves or to get educated.
    Firstly, in the era of Internet the most easily accessible means for learning is receiving information online. For that reason, online courses for learning foreign languages and adopting new skills are very popular among the modern people. Such courses are organized for almost every fields of modern life – from how to use a modern technology device to how to overcome stress.
    The second way in which people educate themselves after leaving school is the travelling and sightseeing. It is a very common method for receiving new information and for widening one’s knowledge about the world history, geography, culture and economy at the same time. What is more, this is an active process which facilitates the ability of people to remember what they have seen and it is a great way to enrich one’s breadth of knowledge even after the end of their school education.
    Lastly, people widen their horizons by taking part in different entertainment clubs. Sport or dance clubs are the perfect places for people to know more about other people’s way of life; their points of view on different topics or to exchange ideas. In this way people learn more about the communication between human beings outside the limited space that schools offer.
    To summarise, opportunities for learning and education about people after they left school are many. Online courses, travelling around the world and communicating with other people are great ways for us to learn more about the world and the secrets it keeps.

    'Process' is countable, so an article is missing.

    I don't think the title needs to be changed. The emphasis is different - the original is on "learning" and not "leaving school".

    Using a gerund phrase does not denote changing the emphasis.

    Ted, that's a pretty good analysis (post #2), but I would say the Internet.

    There is actually no object because 'is' is a linking verb.
