i was reading the article ‘lecture me. really’ and in that aritcle there was a sentence ” listening continuously and taking notes for an hour is an unusual cognitive experience for most young people.” Now I know that it’s saying that the task of taking note is something kids from this generation have to be focused in or else they can’t do it.
