    According to the theories of contemporary educators and psychologists, the key to meaningful learning involves solidly connecting the new learning material with existing ideas in the learner's cognitive structure. New ideas can be usefully learned and retained only to the extent that they can be related to already available concepts. If the new material conflicts too strongly with the existing cognitive structure or is so unrelated that no linkage is provided, the information or ideas may not be incorporated or trained.
    Therefore, a meaningful learning set implies that the learner must be ready to comprehend and relate what is being presented, then the learning occurs. The learner should be ready to reconcile with similar or perhaps contradictory information first, then internalize the meaning of new material or new information in his/her own mind.
    Knowing the learning process inside the learner is truly important and meaningful. Obviously, the need to know more about the learners will be even more urgent in the 21 century.

Which of the following statements is true?
  (A) The learner's learning shouldn't be contradictory with the new material.
 
(B) There is no implication between the learner's learning and comprehension.

(D) The new material shouldn't be unrelated to the existing cognitive structure.
   
 
    Generally, our society and schools value competition over compassion. So often we hear that the main goal of schooling should be to prepare our students to compete with others in global economy. The recent emphasis on standardized tests also stresses personal competition in schools. However, as English teachers in college, we need to face reality that many students in our classes have already been labeled as low achievers by the time they become college freshmen. These non - English - majors are competent at other professional subjects. However, their English learning performance are poor.
    Since education takes place inside each student. Students relate each subject and reach experience to their previous learning and personal lives. Learning itself is personal. Teachers who teach low - achieving students need to design their remedial courses from the holistic learning perspectives, balance learning and assessment rather than to favor one over the other.
    In fact, policymakers at all levels in Taiwan are emphasizing higher standards of English. It's really important for English teachers to help low achievers to become more competent and self - confident in their academic performance as well as personal fulfillment in today's English learning environment.
