Most students in Taiwan like to study alone, especially the high school students because they want to compete with each other. And, the situation is same to me. The US students, however, prefer to share what they own in books with their partners.
In my childhood, I used to study alone at home to get better grades. Many classmates of mine did the same thing as I. Therefore, in my opinion, only studying by myself is the best way to score well. Beside, another good point is studying alone can cultivate us thinking. For example, the Math, I think it is a disgusting subject for most students, including me certainly. When you are solving a difficult problem, your classmates or friends are around you, what do you do? They probably chat with each other or bother you. In this way, you cannot concentrate on the problem completely. Compared with the American students, we Chinese students unscrupulously compete with peers, which is shameful. However, I do not deny thoroughly that group study is bad. While you meet a dilemma, you can discuss with your classmates how to solve. Hence, it is either good or bad depending on everyone.
If I have an opportunity, I still choose to study alone because it is corresponding to my traits.
