If one truly wants to absorb the information then they must be at the head of the class. For once an individual teaches what they’ve “learned” then the challenges of what was absorbed can fully be tested. Teaching not only requires dictating the information for one mind to another but understanding it enough to truly explain over and over again with various different examples. Rote learning might have been the way you originally absorbed the material but teaching brings it out into the real world. So thank you students for the lesson I gave and as such the knowledge I really did accumulate.
