☆  adaptable   柔軟な


If someone is adaptable they can change their ideas or behavior in order to deal with new situations. Being adaptable definitely helps you learn better, right? For example, if you really like your English teacher, and then they quit their job because they are returning to their home country, if you weren’t adaptable, you’d find it hard to settle in with a new teacher. However, being adaptable means that you’d be fine no matter who your teacher is.

Similarly, if your English teacher prefers to use movies to learn slang and idioms, but you prefer reading books, as it is easier than listening to fast English. You could be adaptable and try to do what the teacher suggests rather than saying you can’t do it or don’t want to do it.

Do you think you are adaptable and flexible when it comes to learning?
