My essay:

People's opinions differ as to whether or not studying from the past is extremely significant. Some people still think it is so meaningless to see their previous work again now. In my perspective, I completely disagree with that point and explain reasons in my essay.

Depending on the mistakes in the past that we witnessed or did, which makes us avoid in the present time, even the future view. Let take a typical example, when you were learning English by an inappopriate method for yourself. You realised that approach was not suitable, so that now you enable to change to a new method. Additionally, past is seen as the path leading to the success, which is important to study and review in several times

Moreover, learning in the past in school, still is useful for everyone like History. According to History, we are be able to heroes in the past in Viet Nam, who winned from the war when facing with strong invaders. In addition, we are able to maintain the morals and values from the old generations to my generations. It is also the spirit that express the patriotism for everyone. Therefore, we should know about it and conserve it for the long time in the future.

In conclusion, from ideas mentioned, past is crucial for human being, which is considered to the best knowlege resources for mankind. Actions should be do quickly or next generations will suffer.
