Questão de inglês

TEXT 1

 

Have you always dreamed of traveling to cool places, meeting lots of different people, and maybe picking up a language or two? No matter what country you live in, you can fly over the world's highest waterfalls in Venezuela, learn world trade in Japan, study art in France, or take dancing lessons in Ghana.

How? Join a study abroad programwhere high school and university students live with a host family in a foreign country. Semester, summer, and year-long programs allow you to attend school, take intensive language courses, or perform community service in another country.

Besides the excitement of travel, one reason to study abroad is that you will experience new customs, holidays, foods, art, music, and politics firsthand.

“Obviously, I learned the language and am now fluent, but perhaps more important was how much I learned about cultures, people, and myself. I learned this from the viewpoint of an active member of the community and my host family, not from the tourist's point of view,” says Andrew, who studied in Poitiers, France.

Another reason for studying abroad is that you'll gain self-confidence. You’ll have the opportunity to learn how to better stand up for yourself and your beliefs and to express yourself in another language. “What could make you more confident than that?” says Christina, who studied in Caracas, Venezuela.

Living away from home can also help you adjust in the transition to university and adulthood. Matthew says he returned from studying in Australia with confidence, social ability, and a genuine interest in international affairs that made a difference. “After having gone abroad in high school, I found the transition to university to be a breeze.”

And speaking of university, improving your language skills might help you get into prestigious universities and even find future jobs. Universities and employers know that studying abroad provides leadership skills in a world that is increasingly globally interconnected.

Most of all, it's fun! You're not likely to suffer from general monotony while you're studying in a different learning environment.

TEXT 2

 

Are You a Good Candidate?

 

Although many programs have academic requirements, you usually don't have to have the highest grades to qualify. And most programs do not have language requirements.

 

Who you are is as important as your academic record. Study abroad programs look for students who are independent, self-assured, enjoy new experiences and different types of people, and can handle challenges. When you study in a foreign country, you'll be faced with new circumstances and environments.

 

Ask yourself:

 

? Am I willing to try new things — everything from foods to social situations?

? Am I comfortable making my own decisions, such as what time to leave for school, which courses to take, and how to deal with conflict and change, without family or friends around to help?

? Do I like to take risks?

? How have I handled complex and new situations in the past?

? Will I be able to complete my academic requirements for my school at home and for any future plans?

? Will my school at home accept credits from the programs I am considering?

 

If you really hate change and don't like the idea of taking decisions all on your own, then studying abroad may not be for you. It’s important to really think about your feelings and to be honest with yourself – you could end up miserable far away from home if you aren’t!

Don't let a little anxiety stop you from considering the possibility of a summer, semester, or year abroad, though. Matthew says he will never forget sitting in the airport about to board a plane for Melbourne. “I felt terrified and delighted at the same time,” he says. “In the end, though, the rewards of living overseas far outweigh the initial uncertainties.”
