Learning as Teaching

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

To learn something, testing your understanding is essential.

“What’s the best way to test your understanding?”

By trying to teach it to somebody else.

“What if I don’t have anyone to teach it to?”

“You don’t need an actual person to teach it to.

Think of it as if you’re trying to teach it to somebody else.

Better still,

think of it as if you’re trying to teach it to a child.

If a child can understand your explanation, that’s a sign you’ve really grasped the essence of it.”
