In some countries young people have little leisure time and are under a lot of pressure to work hard in their studies. Causes? Solutions?


Nowadays students have to face a lot of study pressure at school and this leads to their little life free-time. This problem can be directly related to amount of knowledge and extra class. Fortunately there are some feasible methods to reduce this undesirable tendancy.

Firstly, young people must apprehend an extremely big amount of knowlegde at school from more than ten subjects in some countries. These lessons take them so much time that they cannot do anything else but learning. A good example of this is in Vietnam, where students need only six months to get the highest score in SAT mathematics exam because their knowledge that they get in high school is too enormous, whereas American students may not pass the national entrance exam of Vietnam even though they study in six years. Furthermore, young people have to take some extra classes after the official lessons at school, so that they can acquire this large amount of knowledge. For instance, in Vietnam high school, besides approximately 30 hours of study per week at school, students have to take other 30 hours in extra classes. Consequently, they are not able to spend their time on sports, travel or even chatting with their friends.

An obvious answer to this trend is for the government to adjust the lesson schedule. For example, they should eliminate several subjects do not help students a lot after graduating and ban teachers not to open extra classes. As a result, children have more leisure time to do some outside activities in order to refresh their mind.

Another good approach is to build more entertaining places for young people. For instance, in many cities, they have opened many kinds of entertaining activities, such as rock-climbing or paint-ball. As a result, teenagers can not only release their stress, but also find the strange feelings in those brand new sports.

To conclude, it is not easy to solve the trouble of learning pressure in some countries. However, the government should reduce the amount of knowledge and lesson number, as well as open more entertaining centres for young people. If people can follow these solutions, problem of free-time will have no longer been more serious.
