Some international students told us after their graduation in China sincerely that study abroad in China was the best experiences and most beautiful memory of their lives that they would remember for a whole life.They got a lot that they would never be able to learn in their own countries,not only knowledge but also the new precious views of life.
To study abroad means that you will have a opportunity to :
Meet new people and make new friends.
Travel in national spots and see monuments,historical, art sites.
Learn about a different culture and experience it yourself.
Learn a different language and practice with native speakers.
Study a field in a more practical or historically and culturally relevant setting.
These are all benefits of studying abroad.In your own country,you may not get such opportunities to do any of above.If you stay longer,I mean if you study abroad for a long-term program,you will acquire more benefits.
Staying in a country for a long time usually means you will get knowing of it well.Sometimes you will fall in love with a country or a city just because of the feeling you feel about it.When you live in a new place,You can catch an deep insight into your own culture by comparing it to another,it gives you perspective on why and how you do things differently from other people and reminds you that your way isn't the only way.Thinking differently comes from this experience.People who had overseas living background have better creative ability and are more likely to create new stuffs.And you will learn how to get along with people in different colors from different culture and countries by living,talking,studying and working with them.It is also probably to create a meaningful relationships with people that you either bond with through the scares and joys of being abroad.As for yourself,you will suddenly realize that you’re able to conquer fear and survive anything.It’s likely that you will meet dishonest people who lied to you,but always remember bad people exists everywhere.You will be usedto live by yourself,cook for yourself and take good care of yourself and gradually you will become a strong and independentperson.If personality can be trained,study abroad is absolutely the best way for a teenager.Speaking of the countries you’re going to,you could choose to go to a country where the native language is the same as yours; from the US, many students study in England, Scotland, Australia, or New Zealand since English is the main language spoken in those countries.Or youcould go far to a country where people speak a whole new language to you.Both are good choices because walking out of your country itself is a brave decision to make.
