The Advantage And Disadvantage Of Studying Abroad Essays

 

As society develops, more and more students are no longer limited to their home town to seek knowledge. Instead they have the opportunity to study in a developing city, and even to attend a school in a foreign country.

Numerous parents who are far-sighted think it is better for their children to study abroad. First of all, foreign schools have more advanced teaching techniques and materials, which can help students learn easier. They also have interesting methods of learning. Secondly, students who attend foreign schools are more independent and able to finish a project by themselves. Although there are no familiar people around them, it is a good opportunity to develop themselves. Finally, students can learn about different cultures and take in new knowledge that can help them find a good job. This kind of experience will make their resumes look different from other applicants’ resumes.

However, there are also some disadvantages to studying abroad. In fact, studying abroad can be risky as it is similar to investing. On the one hand, it is a waste of time and money. More specifically, students going abroad need to study that country’s national language first, so there is nothing for them to do except learn the language. Studying in a foreign country costs more money than in their own country. On the other hand, they may not focus on their studies because there is nobody around them to supervise them. In addition, due to the fact that they live in a strange place, they will feel lonely and homesick.

In conclusion, studying abroad has both advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion, although studying abroad is challenging, it is beneficial for students. It will be hard for them at the beginning. However, after a few tough years, they will reap the rewards. Hopefully, students who study abroad can get over all the difficult problems they encounter.

    The advantages and disadvantages of studying abroad.

    Dear All,

    I am new member on this forum.I think this is a good forum to help each other improving our language.This is my essay about the advantages and disadvantages of studying abroad.Could you guy can give me some advice on my essay?Thank in advance for your kindness.and this is my essay below:


    When people's standard of living increase,they often think about improving their knowledge for a better life.To do that,they choose to study in developed contries where they can get progressive education.However,everything has its advantages and disadvantages,so studying abroad is not an exeptation.

    In my opinion, I think studying abroad is the beat way to improve ourselve.As you know, there are obvious advantages to study abroad.

    Fristly, We have chance to improve our language. I think nothing is better than to learn language with the native speakers.Because we can practise with the local people what we study at school, so it is very useful to improve our listening and speaking skills.It also offer chances to discover the new cultures,way of thinking,history,customs and lifestyles.

    Futhermore, we have opportunities to study the new technologies and most recent science achivements.In addition, we are equipped with the valuaable and updated knowledge which may help us find jobs easily after graduating.

    However, studying abroad is often expensive.We have to pay not only for our school fees but also for our living cost.Therefore, finance may become the biggest problem. Consequently, it distracts our mind from studying to earning money.

    Last but not least,adapting to a new environment is e real challenge for every foreign student.While changing the weather can affect our health,different cultures and customs may influence our mind and make us become less confident or even a victim of discrimination.Everyday may turn into a struggle for survival in a strange coutry.If we dont have enough physical and mental strength,we will fail to adjust ourselve in the new environment.As a result, we could neither study or gain beautiful experiences as we have expected.

    In conclustion, while studying abraod offers great opportunities for a better future,it also has challenges that we must try our best to overcome what happened to make our dream come true.Therefore,If you have a chance i think you should take that chance to study abroad.
