We lay huge stress on education in our lives. So what exactly is education? It is essential a process of learning. There are two types of education - Formal and Informal. The formal aspect of education is what most of us think of when the word education is said. This is the learning that one acquires in school and college. The various subjects such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry, History, Geography, Civics, Languages, and so many more are what we learn in the formal education set up. These train us in a manner so that we can contribute back to society by being productive.

However education and learning cannot be restricted to this formal aspect alone. There is a lot that a child will learn in the informal set up as well. A child is expected to learn so much even before he steps out of the home to join a play group. Indeed his education about the world he lives in begins the day he is born and will continue till he dies. He needs to know how to behave with others, and how to look after himself and his things among other things. He will constantly deal with new situations and take back lessons.

Once his formal education begins his informal one also gathers speed. He learns from his peers in school about socially acceptable behavior. This may take some trial and error on his part before he picks up the social skills needed. If he throws tantrums he will not be liked. If he is polite others will respond in a likewise manner. Informal education gives him a set of social skills to last him a life time. It is now that he will develop his own unique personality. This is formed in the early years and will not change too much over the years.

As his formal education progresses to college, his informal one makes him more worldly wise. He learns about how to deal with superiors, and juniors besides handling his own peers. Once he begins to work he learns more each day. He learns about being a good leader and training his own team. He may study a wide variety of topics in the course of his studies, but he will also learn how to deal with the opposite sex and establish lasting relationships in the informal circuit. He will learn to deal with being married and having children, which as any parent will tell you, is an education in itself.
