shall we send children to study abroad?
with more and more people becoming rich in recent years, it is a new tendency for them to send their children to study abroad. but i don’t think it is a good idea. first of all, children are too young to look after themselves. second, the language barrier is a serious problem. many children are not proficient in the foreign language before going abroad. as a result, they have difficulty in understanding what the native speakers are talking about. third, they may get into trouble when dealing with various situations for lack of knowledge of the customs in the strange land. furthermore, the cost of living is much higher than that in our country, which might cause a heavy burden to the family.
in conclusion, there are more disadvantages in sending children to study abroad. so, we’d better not do it.

i had an unforgettable trip to cambridge today.
the weather was fine today. my classmates and i went on a guided trip to cambridge by coach. it took us about three hours to get there.
as soon as we got there, we were divided into several groups, with a professional guide to show us around. first, we were shown the king’s college, whose chapel (礼拜堂) impressed me most. it is the most spectacular (壮观的) building that i have ever seen. then we visited other places such as trinity college, and fitzwilliam museum. in the end, we walked along the cambridge river and enjoyed the beautiful view.
although tired, i spent the most exciting day in my life. i hope one day i can study in cambridge university — my dream college.
