At the present time, education is a very important and necessary thing. Most people make an effort to gain high education in order that they will get good chances and have a better life. Some people continue their studies locally, while many people choose to study abroad. For me, studying abroad is better than studying locally for a number of important reasons.
Firstly, studying abroad helps people improve their foreign language whereas studying locally does not. When people go to study abroad, they have to use foreign language all the time to communicate with other people. From this point, it will help people improve their language skills such as pronunciation, conversational skill, and writing skill. These are very important because second language skills give people a better chance of a job. On the other hand, people, who study locally, still use their native language. There is no factor to pressure them to use foreign language, so their skills are not improved as much as people who study abroad.
Secondly, studying abroad helps people gain more experiences than studying locally. Studying abroad is very fascinating. People will meet new things that they have never seen before. They are able to gain their experiences from learning new cultures, and meeting lots of different people. In contrast, people, who study locally, will gain their experiences just only in their country. They will meet just the same things and do not have a chance like people who study abroad. Moreover studying abroad can enhance their career. It is something that gives people the priority. You may notice that most people, who succeed in their career, used to study abroad. Therefore studying abroad is better than studying locally.
Studying abroad worth it!


pro has given only 2 reason:

1. studying abroad will improve language skill

2. studying abroad will help you learn new culture.

but language skill can be developed locally. there are many foreign language teaching institution available locally. so why go abroad?

secondly we can learn about foreign culture while living in our own country. all you have to do is to read book about new culture or search the net. you will get plenty of info about new culture. why go abroad?

now i am telling you why you should not go abroad?

1. huge expenditure.

2. no job guarantee.

3. race discriminatory attitude: Muslims oftentimes face it.

4. less govt. protection

so staying home is better than going abroad.

Depends on where you live and where you'd move to study.
