    study

    Hi there,
    I don't know how to use 'study', 'studying' and 'studies' as nouns,for example,

    1. We should learn how to balance between our (study OR studying OR studies) and social activities.
    2. We will further our (studies or study or studying) in the US.
    thanks

    study :

    This is his study of the value in speaking well. [a detailed analysis of something]
    Where is your study? Oh, it's by the front door. [the room in which you study]
    His line of study is the interaction of allopathic drugs. [a piece of academic work]

    studies: [studying or something involving study]
    We will further our studies in the US
    Balancing our studies and our social lives is hard but necessary.

    It can also be used in titles of academic departments:
    The Department of Metallurgical Studies

    I don't think I have met "studying" used as a noun.

    Re: study

    We should learn how to balance our studies and social activities.
    or
    We should learn how to balance our study and social activity.
    or
    We should learn how to balance studying and social activity.

    We will further our studies in the US. (more than one study)
    or
    We will further our study in the US. (a single topic of study)
    or
    We will continue studying in the US.

    All the above are correct depending on what you want to convey.
