At first it seems that the question doesn't require an answer. On the other hand there is a deep sense here.
From the earliest childhood till nowadays parents tell us to study, study and study. There is no doubt that it means to do all home tasks to listen to the teacher, not to talk on the lessons and so on. But in my view to study means to get not only academical knowledge, but knowledge that are not written in textbooks, such as sense of duty and responsibility, relations with adults and children, development of different qualities of character, positive attitude to life and many others.
In addition to it is important to study not only to be a worthy member of society, but to get a good high paid job. Moreover studying allows us to be an interesting person, who can speak out on different things with different people.
Another thing is that studying is encouraged. Those pupils who study well, get different awards, medals, diplomas. Pupils who get good marks are given money. Some institutes and universities offer budget places for students, who won city olympiads.
People respect those who study. They serve as an example.
It’s rather easy to draw the conclusion: it is very important to study. As for me studying is my only task now.
