- For Teachers
(Some students take a year off after finishing school and before starting university. this is called a ‘gab year’)
Nowadays, in some countries, more and more students are encouraged to spend a year off, often called the gab year, but what can the students acquire from the gap year and what would be the negative effects?
To begin with, gap years hand you over the opportunity to travel around the world which definitely broadens your horizons. For instance, meeting people from different countries, learning different languages, and knowing more about the world’s other culture would be in fact alluring.
Furthermore, it contributes a year of work experience in different fields to gain-collect- money to aid and help the students in universities’ fees.
On the other hand, there are many various problems considered when taking a gap year, one main dilemma would be leaving your studies for a year may have an influence on your educational levels, many students forget what they have learned through years.
Another drawback, the gap year is a waste of money and time, for example, you may pat rents, phone bills and exchange fees….etc.
To sum up, I hold this point view that a gab year bestow you a break and a different life-styles.it is fresh, challenging and thrilling.
thanks in advance
