Traveling Abroad in College
Posted 1/8/08
colleges in America are better than the colleges in Japan. But schools in Japan are better than schools in America. So what I would do is stay in Japan for 1~12th grade then move to America for college.

why? you can't study abroad in ohio?



I'm fifteen so not ready for college, plus the cost of studying abroad is tremendous


i know it's very high priced but is that in ohio or what.

I'm gonna take Japanese classes in case I happen to persuade my parents to let me study abroad for a while. The only places my college offers is England and Italy.

The only true way for language proficiancy is language emersion, and if you didn't grow up speaking it in the home, the next best thing is to go to the country to study. All the colleges I know, for foreign language majors, require a semester to a year of abroad study

I think studying abroad for college is a great idea. However, the challenge is not the academics itself, but surviving in another country. IMO I think studying abroad helps students widen their horizons on what the world is. Also by facing problems abroad might require out of the box type of thinking, making the student much more ready for the real world.

too true, I lived in austria and picked up the german language there, learning to speak it fluently. I want to learn at least two more languages and the only way I know how is to take the a course on it and then go abroad. you wont ever speak a language fluently in a country where the language isn't spoken by all.

I studied abroad in England and Scotland, and it was a really great experience. I went during the summer, so it was tourist season, but we weren't exactly tourists. Study abroad lets you see a lot of stuff you might not see if you were just traveling. The cost usually puts people off, but if you look around you can find some pretty good deals. And definitely take advantage of scholarships.

As for making it a requirement, I think it's a good idea, but colleges would have to budget a certain amount just for study abroad. Tuition would probably go up and it definitely doesn't need to. There are a lot of factors to consider.

I havent really studied abroad but i plan on doing it at least once. it's not just to learn a new language either, there is some rich culture in a lot of places (though not in Canada or the US, im afraid). But for me, at least, I want to do it for the language and the culture. a nice culture shock once in a while is nice
