Attending schools abroad has many advantages. In the first place, by looking at our own country from the outside, we can best see the strong points and weak points of out nation and therefore widen our vision① and broaden our minds. Second, while studying in a foreign country, we can travel widely, visiting famous scenic spots and making friends with the local people. Thirdly, we can use the foreign language in our daily life so that our ability in the second language may be improved quickly. But the most important thing in attending a foreign university is to get acquainted with② the latest knowledge in science and technology and make use of the first-rate facilities③ available. For all these advantages, it is really worthwhile to go abroad for education.
However, as everything has two sides, there are also some disadvantages in attending a foreign university. The most serious problem is the language barrier④. Most of the students who are ready to go abroad do not have adequate proficiency⑤ in the language spoken there. As a result, on arriving there, they will find it difficult to understand what the instructors are saying. Besides, for lack of knowledge of the customs and way of life of the local people, they may run into trouble in dealing with various situations. Therefore, misunderstandings⑥ often arise. Furthermore, the cost of living is much higher than that in our country, so most students have to find part-time jobs in order to help support themselves. Faced with these difficulties, many students find themselves unable to pay full attention to their studies and some students may even fail in their courses and learn little.
Therefore, one must consider both sides of the factors carefully before making up his mind to study abroad. On the whole, it is a good thing to study abroad, but the disadvantages should not be ignored.
②get acquainted with: 开始熟悉
④language barrier: 语言障碍
⑥misunderstandings: 误会, 误解
文章首段用列举法说明到国外上学有许多好处。并在段尾用因果法推出观点：到国外求学是值得的。第二段用However, everything has two sides. 进行过渡，并用列举法和因果法说明上国外大学也有不足之处。第三段，作者用therefore引出对全文的总结：对待出国留学问题，我们应全面考虑。既要看到其优点，也不能忽视其缺点。
