Do you know what an internship program is? This is a kind of program that helps other students earn money for them to go to school and to have experiences in other country but we often think of the advantages and disadvantages for young people who works or travel after graduating high school or before finishing a degree.
The topic which I will discuss today is about the young people who are encouraged to work or travel for a year between finishing high school and staring university studies. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this?
The advantage of working or traveling about at an early age could offer wide experiences outside of their country. They could also learn the different cultures and views. Of course if I am not mistaken, they could improve their speaking English abilities because they have to use English which is a world wide language instead of their own languages. And lastly, they could have competence or independent mind by living or undertaking alone.
The disadvantages of working or traveling about at an early age also make people anxious, first, they are still young to work outside of the country because at their age, it is their role to go to university and get a degree which they have interest. Second, it is very dangerous for them to go abroad and work or travel. It is not their country. How could they solve or decide at young age if there are some problems? And, what if they are sick? In outside of their country and even without family, they will not only sick in physically but also mentally, and lastly, the young people who will work or travel outside of their country might fall into temptation easily compare to those who are staying in their country and work or travel because in outside, there are a lot of different amusements which the young people could get attracted. It might be helpless for those people with weak minds.
By citing one by one, I realized that whatever we do or decide we should always be careful in choosing or determining something so that we will not have any regrets after sometime.
