STUDYING ABROAD

Before applying to a foreign university, one should consider the disadvantages of

studying abroad. First, a student may feel lonely by being far from home and friends. Also,



difficulty in understanding a foreign language can be very disappointing and can affect the

student’s grades. It can be very expensive to pay the costs of travel and housing in a

different country. Finally, if there is an emergency at home, it will be hard to get home in a

hurry.

However, studying in another country is advantageous in many ways. A student is

exposed to a new culture. This culture teaches him or her about other people and other

ways of thinking, which can promote friendships among countries. He can learn a new

language which may be beneficial for keeping up with research after the student has

finished studying. He can learn experience not available in his country. The student may

also get the opportunity to study at a university where a leading expert in his field may be

teaching. The leading expert can introduce the student to the most up-to-date findings of

the top researchers in the field. Exposure to such available knowledge and insights into

the field can aid the student in becoming an expert as well.

1. ______ to study abroad.

A. There are only disadvantages

B. There are only advantages

C. There are both advantages and disadvantages

D. There are neither advantages nor disadvantages

2. When studying abroad, a student ______.

A. is homesick and feels lonely

B. spends a lot of money for accommodation and transportation

C. cannot go home immediately in an emergency

D. All are correct.

3. When studying abroad, a student is exposed to a new culture that ______.

A. has no advantages

B. enriches his knowledge about people and other ways of thinking

C. has no effects

D. causes some trouble

4. At a foreign university, a student ______.

A. can learn a foreign language

C. has to learn his mother tongue



B. cannot learn a foreign language

D. doesn’t have to learn a language



5. At a foreign university, a student may ______.

A. meet his neighbour

C. meet a leading expert in his field
