Приветствую всех читателей нашей странички. У нас осталось 2 «занятия» перед датой сдачи экзамена по английскому языку, которая в этом учебном году назначена на 19 мая. Поэтому постараемся попрактиковаться во всех видах заданий в формате ЕГЭ.
Но сначала порассуждаем о преимуществах и недостатках обучения за рубежом, что было «домашним заданием» в предыдущем номере газеты. Наши аргументы «за» и «против» на эту тему следующие:
1. Introduction (state the problem)
Nowadays, with better co-operation, and relation with foreign countries, some students choose to study at a foreign university rather than a local, one. However, there are drawbacks to studying in another country.
2. Arguments «for»
A reason why people want to study in another country is that, they have the opportunity of learning the, language of that country, Also, you learn to be more independent because you do not have your, family nearby to rely on. In addition, you have the chance to get to, know people from a different country and, apart from making new friendships and contacts, you become familiar with, another culture and way of life. This helps to broaden the mind.
3. Arguments «against»
On the other hand, studying abroad can be very, expensive and your family may have to give up, things like holidays to be able to afford to send you to another country. Moreover, you may get homesick and unhappy there because you are far away from your family. As a result you might mix only with other students from your own country and so, will not experience a different style of living.
All in all, whether you would enjoy, studying abroad depends on what kind of person you are and how much you can afford. If you have strong family ties, then it might be better to study in your own country. But, if you are, the type who mixes well with people from different cultures, then it could be a challenging experience.

Work in the Future
