Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay on the challenges of studying abroad. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
As economic globalization and cultural integration have impacted people’s life more profoundly, an increasing number of college students are inclined to study abroad in order to seek for different educational opportunities. The challenges of studying studying abroad can be listed as follows. Initially, different habits and customs can exerted unexpected effects on our life. We are not used to living in a completely strange environment. Besides, teaching philosophy and methods among diverse countries are contradictory sometimes, which is not suitable for students studying abroad. At last, studying abroad needs huge expense. Not only should our parents take pressure, we also need to do heavy part-time jobs after school. To conclude, were it left to me to comment, I would recommend that students are expected to fully consider whether studying abroad is the best choice for themselves and their family.
