Recently there is a heated discussion about whether we should go abroad to study. Opinions are divided on this issue. Some of the students think we benefit a lot from studying abroad. First of all, we’ll be independent without parents taking care of us. Besides, it is easier for us to learn a foreign language and local culture. Then, with the help of the tutor, we can learn advanced studying methods. Finally, all these experiences can enrich our life.
Each coin has two sides. Other students think it’s no good studying abroad. In the first place, to get used to a whole new way of life, we have to learn almost everything. Secondly, the natives don’t talk like they do on our listening tape, so it is difficult to communicate with them. What’s worse, we maybe feel lonely and miss our parents and our friends in China now and then. As far as I’m concerned, the advantages outweigh disadvantages. Therefore, I’m in favor of going abroad to study.
