我为什么去做交换生的11个理由

Eleven Reasons Why Being an Exchange Student is to Your Competitive Advantage

 

SAS学弟学妹们大家好,我今天受SAS老师委托给学弟学妹们回答下我的交换11个理由,我也是交换受益者,因为交换拿到了众多海外牛校研究生offer。话不多说,直接说出我的选择理由。

每年都有成千上万的学生决定迈出一大步,去另一个国家接受教育。每个人都有不同的原因——有些学生想看看世界,有些是为了寻求更好的教育,有些是想探索新的文化,还有一些只是想获得新的经历和冒险。无论什么原因,作为交换生,在生活、学习和未来的职业生涯中都有很多优势。以下是其中的一些优势。

Every year, thousands of students decide to take a big step and to move to another country to pursue an education. Everyone has different reasons for doing so—some students want to see the world, some are seeking a better education, some want to explore new cultures, and some just want to get new experiences and adventures. Whatever the reason, being an exchange student gives you many advantages in life, your studies, and your future career. Here are some of these advantages.

1. 你有机会学习一门新的语言

这是第一个也是最明显的优势。当你学习一门新的语言时,你会学习到一个全新的、不同的世界,那里的人们用不同的眼光和描述事物。这样,你就会变得更聪明,更有见识。会说两种或两种以上的语言,你也会让自己在求职时更有市场。

You Have the Opportunity to Learn a New Language

This is the first and most obvious advantage. When you learn a new language, you learn a whole new, different world of people who see and describe things differently. And by that, you become wiser and more knowledgeable. By speaking two or more languages, you also make yourself more marketable when job hunting.

2. 你能比大多数人看到更多的世界

没有多少人能说他们在多个国家见过和生活过,直到他们能够赚到足够的钱去真正旅行。而你,会的!你会看到不同的观点和不同的人,看世界是最好的扩展人们的视野。

You Are Able to See More of the World Than Most People

Not many people can say they have seen and lived in multiple countries until they are able to earn enough money to actually travel. You, on the other hand, will! You will have seen different views and different people and seeing the world is what expands people’s horizons the best.

3.你可以克服挑战

试着买一盒牛奶,却不知道商店在哪里,也不能向任何人问路,因为你的语言技能还没有得到很好的发展。或者试着在入学第一天去找招生办公室。作为交换生,每天都要克服新的挑战。这肯定会让你更强大。

You Can Overcome Challenges

Try to buy a carton of milk not knowing where the store is and not being able to ask anyone the directions because your language skills are not well developed yet. Or try to go and find the admission office on your first day. Being an exchange student means overcoming new challenges every day. That for sure makes you stronger.

4. 你会提高你写作的创造力

如果你的语言不是很好,你需要非常有创造力来写不同的文章或其他写作作业。在大学里处理这些问题的大量经验会激发你的创造力,甚至会使你的书面语言比母语者的语言更有趣。

You Will Boost Your Creative Writing

 

If you don’t know the language very well, you need to be very creative to write different essays or other writing assignments. Numerous experiences of dealing with such tasks in college will actually boost your creativity and maybe even make your written language more interesting than the language of a native speaker.

5. 你将能够适应一种新的文化,这意味着你将能够适应任何事物

总的来说,这对你未来的事业和生活都是有利的。快速适应变化的能力是一种非常宝贵的品质。雇主倾向于欣赏潜在员工的这一品质,并可能在其他候选人中选择他们。

You Will Be Able to Adapt to a New Culture Which Means That You’ll Be Able to Adapt to Anything

This is an advantage for your future career and your life in general. The ability to quickly adapt to change is a very valuable quality. Employers tend to appreciate this quality in potential workers and may choose them over other candidates.

6. 你会变得更加严峻

去另一个没有朋友和家人的国家会让你变得更坚强。当然,你会在那里结交朋友,但这种生活方式的巨大变化会让你以一种好的方式坚强起来。当你有父母的帮助时,你会感到安全和放松。当你在一个不同的国家,不了解任何人,你学会照顾自己和解决问题。

You'll Become Tougher

Going to another country where you have no friends and family makes you tougher. Of course, you will make friends there, but this drastic change of lifestyle toughens you up in a good way. When you have help from your parents, you feel safe and relaxed. When you are in a different country and don’t know anyone well, you learn to take care of yourself and solve problems.

7. 你可以得到更好的教育

学生通常去的国家的教育体系比他们自己的国家更好;这是合乎逻辑的。所以,如果交换学生毕业后回国或到另一个国家找工作,他们有一个巨大的优势,即拥有一个享有声望的文凭。然而,许多学生决定留下来,在竞争激烈、声望显赫的就业市场上争取一份好工作。

You May Get a Better Education

Students typically go to countries where the educational system is better than in their own country; that is logical. So, if exchange students come back after graduation or go to another country to seek for a job, they have a huge advantage of having a prestigious diploma. Many students, however, decide to stay and fight for a good job in a competitive and prestigious job market.

8. 你获得了第二个家庭

许多交换学生在学习期间住在当地家庭。自然,他们中的许多人会在另一个国家建立家庭。有两个随时准备帮助你的家庭是一件很棒的事情。如果学生选择住在校园里,他们也可以有第二个家庭,即他们的朋友和室友。

You Gain a Second Family

Many exchange students stay with a local family for the duration of their studies. Naturally, many of them get attached and acquire another family in a different country. Having two families that are ready to help you at any moment is a great thing. If students choose to live on campus, they can also get a second family in their friends and roommates.

9. 你会更自律

你要自己做饭,洗衣服等等。没有爸爸妈妈为你做这件事。交换学生很快就学会了一些将伴随他们一生的纪律。

You Become More Disciplined

You will be responsible for cooking your own meals, doing laundry, etc. There will be no mom or dad to do it for you. Exchange students quickly learn some discipline that stays with them for the rest of their lives.

10. 你可以见到来自世界各地的学生

来自世界不同国家的学生可以参加交流项目,所以你可能会遇到来自世界各地的人。通常,交换生会成为好朋友,因为他们都是新来的。这段友谊可能会持续很多年。

You're Able to Meet Students From All Over the World

Exchange programs are available for students from different countries of the world, so you will likely meet people from everywhere. Often, exchange students become good friends as they are all new to the area. This friendship may last for many years.

11. 你会变得更加自信和独立

知道你已经处理了这么多事情,克服了这么多挑战,只会让你更加确信自己的能力。你会知道你有能力战斗并取得胜利。你会获得新的尊重,别人也会尊重你。

You Become More Confident and Independent

Knowing that you have coped with so many things and have overcome so many challenges can only make you more sure of your own powers. You will know that you are able to fight and win. You will gain a newfound respect for yourself and other people will respect you, too.

交换计划为年轻人打开了许多大门。他们有机会看看这个世界,学习很多新事物,结交一辈子的朋友,探索新的文化。这是一段你会微笑着记住一辈子的经历。除了美好的回忆,在开始一份新的职业时,它还会给你很大的影响力。

 

Exchange programs open many doors for young people. They have the opportunity to see the world, learn many new things, make lifetime friends, and explore new cultures. This is the experience that you will remember with a smile for the rest of your life. Apart from good memories, it gives you a lot of leverage when starting a new career.
