For example classic kitab without harakat. To find the meaning of that kitab we need Islamic teacher or kiayi who expert it.
Dr. Hasani Ahmad Said, M.A explained the definition of sorogan which has meaning the individual learning process that Islamic student face to face with Islamic teacher or kiayi. Then, made interaction and encourage each other. Different from sorogan, the meaning of bandongan is learning together by the group which followed by all of Islamic student with Islamic teacher or kiayi. A Islamic teacher or kiayi reciting kitab at certain time, Islamic student listen, scrutinize thst kiayis reading, and write down the important note in their kitab. Both of these method still exist and implement in Islamic boarding school especially traditional Islamic boarding school.
The learning method in Islamic boarding school is proven that has effectivity and high signification to reach the result of learning. By using these methods, the Islamic student have been guided seriously in mastering the material. There are several Islamic school who do not understand when learn through bandongan learning and blush for asking they can ask by sorogan method. By sorogan method Islamic student can ask free and ease without feel cheap with other Islamic student because of this method more intensive and individual.
