Traditional learning and adult learning have some differences that should be noted. Adults will always learn best when they know the reason why they are learning something. They will also learn more if they have the freedom to learn whenever they want to. If they would be forced to learn something, they can close their minds to the details that they would learn.
There are times when adults would learn when the time is right. This means that if they have the will to learn at that time, they will absorb details better. When the adult is determined, then learning can occur.
