THINKING LOUDLY

I came across a new book which deals with the act of reading, and discusses writing as a medium for learning.

A medium for learning. Enticing!

I see that its theme resembles this:

input = listening (reading),
output = speaking (writing).

One talks about (writes down) concepts yet to be formed, inputting information by listening to them while speaking (reading them again while writing) and can later shape/correct/argue them. It's a process for concepts to form/develop in the mind, then enter short-term memory, and to, if necessary, get internalised by the learner.

So, the four skills are tools for one's mind.

Thinking silently is monodrama.
Thinking loudly via writing (blogging included) is a hope to outreach the monodrama.

really?

Hmm... I said very little though in this, if that could be a point at all...

Yesterday in the library I read something extremely interesting, something about resistence. I'll say a bit more after I reach a better understanding.

因為公司電腦只能看gmail卻不能回信,所以我就回在這裡。

國王的圖書館還算好找。它在Chancery Lane上面,你可以從Fleet Street轉進去,也可以從High Holborn Street轉進去,但總之轉進去Chancery Lane之後直走就會找到,圖書館比較靠近Fleet Street這頭。如果是從Fleet Street轉進去,是在右手邊。

食物的話,附近有很多小巷子,稍微探險一下就會找到許多小攤子了!就是有賣pasta, pesto, fish and chips的那種小店,4磅可以解決一餐,或是11點半之前去吃特價的3.99全套早餐(就是有一大盤各種東西,外加一杯咖啡那種),所以很方便待一天。

圖書館裡面真的環境很好,很適合K書。累了又可以走到附近的Lincoln's Inn的草坪休息。

真希望我現在就在那裡啊!!!

這我就真的不知道了耶
因為我都是從宿舍走去的說
但是我猜那附近的YH/B&B應該都很貴喔
畢竟是很中心的地方
