    Exclamation Need help at collecting ideas, tomorrow oral test :(


    tomorrow I've a group discussion at school as a taste of the upcoming oral test in 1 month. The discussion tomorrow is about "Should students work to get some extra money? - During Sunday afternoon your family has met to discuss about taking a job to earn some extra money".

    My role is the oldest son (22) who wants to buy a car. He goes to University and wants to work during term-breaks.

    Has anybody some arguments for my role?

    I have to discuss in a group out of 5 people, (Mum, Dad, Me (22), little brother (18), little brother (13)). (So children vs. parents).

    I found just these arguments for my role:

    - Work experience
    - More independent
    - I'm old enough with 22 to decide by my own
    - I don't need to borrow always the car of my parents
    - I have more money to spend
    - My parents don't need to support me so much like before
    - I get an impression how the work I do is
    -> Important for my working-life, that I know this is sth what I like / like not
    - I have to start to handle my life slowly by my own

    Has somebody more ideas? Some counter arguments against arguments of the parents would be also helpful.

    Thanks for help!

    - Real-life experience in your field of study (everyone wants job candidates that have worked in their field, universities don't provide enough opportunities for this)

    - promise to keep regular study times/ not to neglect studies
