Extracts from this document...


Outline: Studying abroad not only can benefit for International students, but also have much positive effect on the countries which admit these overseas students to the universities. We should encourage young people to study abroad because of these two aspects of benefit. 1. Benefits of students: a. A chance to have the further high quality education, and absorb new and advanced knowledge. This will help them to have advantages for the competition in job markets b. To have the excellent English communication skill. This will be much beneficial for their future. /Lin (1986)/ c. Enrich the life experience of the students, and broaden their vision to view the world. (To feel the intercultural different between motherland and the country where they are studying.) ...read more.

This will benefit their competitiveness in job markets when they go back to their countries. Some people argue it that, as Lin (1986) says, "There is some doubt that the value and efficiency of studying in another language when, on return to this country, students have to work in their own language. ...read more.


In the universities, as one of most important source of finance, overseas students need to pay expensive tuition fees as 3 to 4 times as local students. However, the opposite opinions state, according to Baffle (1991), "...international students compete for accommodation, making it difficult for home students to find places to live." But it will be ignored much easily, if we compare this negative effect with the huge benefits for local students. For instance, home students can learn the rich knowledge and creative ideas from their overseas classmates, which will enrich their experience of life and help them to understand the world. In conclusion, for both overseas students and their education providers, studying abroad has more advantages than disadvantages. In my opinion, we should encourage young people to study overseas.
