Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Many students go on school trips. Some people say they are interesting and educational. Other people say that they are a waste of time and children should only learn in the classroom. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that going on school trips is a waste of time and money, whereas others say that they are quite educational and useful.
I think that going on a school trip is a very good experience. First of all, we say, “better to see once than hear a hundred times”. When you see something with your own eyes you memorize it much better. Second, going on school trips develops traveling skills like learning a route, preparing for it and attentiveness. Traveling is good for experiencing other countries, to compare them with your own and to get to know them better. School trips also make friendships between classmates stronger.
Some other people say everything can be learned by books at school. Why should we waste money and time for traveling?
Well, students learn a lot of things by books anyway, but I am sure that some very important events are better to learn on school trips. Students don not go on trips often, just a few times a year. So, it will not do any harm to their regular studying.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are a lot of ways to study something and traveling is not the last one in this list. Learning different things on school trips is also a lot of fun and I believe that learning can be fun.
