Teaching and learning in an informal and formal institution always takes place in a classroom, studio, lecture hall/theatre and laboratories. The fundamental objective of these places is for learners and teachers to interact with each other in pursuit of educational activities. It is obvious that everybody who went through any system of education would learn from one of the above mentioned places. For instance, someone who learns to sew dresses will learn under the shed or shop. Similarly a teacher would teach a student in a classroom or in a lecture hall/laboratory.
The environment in these places may differ, ranging from physical elements to social climates.

The noise levels would greatly vary depending on the location and activities in the area. A shoemaker 's shop near the market would have different noise levels compared to a school located in a residential area.
