You said that learning and understanding is complex. I am saying that it is only complex when you define learning and understanding in the context of teaching students a subject that they are not inherently interested in or good at. When you define learning and understanding in the context of teaching students a subject they are inherently interested in and good at, then it isn?t complex. In fact, it is quite easy once you understand the process.
By all means please do clarify what you mean when you say that learning and understanding is complex, and give us some details as to who the teacher is and who the student is the context you are making this statement.
