Study abroad or at home
With the rapid development of science and technology, much more people plan to study abroad than before. They are the students who are from colleges and universities, from the middle schools, from the primary schools, or from all walks of life. However, what difference does it make between studying abroad and studying home?
I believe studying home is preferable though many students are enthusiastic about studying abroad to pursue their higher education. On the one hand, you don’t have to take foreign language tests such as TOEFL or GRE. This can save you a tremendous amount of time, money and effort, allowing you to put much energy into to your academic field. In addition, if you study at home, you can stay with your family and old friends. Meanwhile, while studying at home, you can enjoy the intimate friendship and comfortable family atmosphere which you can only dream of in a foreign university, where you will be accompanied by your own shadow most of the time. For these reasons, it is more realistic and sensible to pursue one’s higher education at home than studying abroad.
In a word, compared with studying abroad, I prefer to study at home. For one thing, it saves money for my family, and relieves the pressure of my parents. For another, studying at home may make me better than studying abroad, if I go to a terrible school abroad.
