Question: In the past, when students did a university degree, they tended to study in their own country. Nowadays, they have more opportunity to study aboard. What are the advantages and disadvatages of this development?


We now live in an age when many of us have a chance to study in another country to get a university qualification. It is different from many years ago that students just stayed in their province and went to college, so let us consider what strengths and weaknesses studying overseas includes.

Generally speaking, a student will benefit from living aboard and studying there. Firstly, every country has its diverse traditions and customs, so it is good for us to discover. For example, Chileans have a surprisingly unique New Year celebrating way is spending New Year's Eve with the dead. Therefore, some kinds of traditional celebrations like that probably make us curious and interested in. Secondly, we will have a chance to study with effective and modern studying methods that help us to learn easily such as theories combine practicing, going on an excursion, studying with smart televisions and robots, being encouraged to organize a community project, etc so we will become more knowledgeable to develop our countries when we return.

Notwithstanding, getting foreign schooling also has some drawbacks. Culture shock is one of them. We cannot be accustomed to it right away; it may take us two weeks or one month to adjust, especially for some of who have been familiar to our country's lifestyles, it can take us years. For instance, Asians have difficulty being used to the greet methods are kissing cheeks and hugging each other when they study in Western countries. Or some left-handed people feel uncomfortable in the UAE because using left hand when they are eating is considered gross. Otherwise, if we have a habit of sitting in the back of a cab, then it is rude in Australia.

Without any doubt, not only does the trend of overseas study have the positive aspect that is its studying facilities and a chance for us to explore the culture but also cover a downside is shocking people with those unfamiliar cultures.

It would be nice if you check for grammar errors, word choices, etc. Thank you very much!

We now live in an age when many of us have a chance to study in another country to get a university qualification. (wrong word) It is different from many years ago that students just stayed in their province and went to college, so let us consider what strengths and weaknesses studying overseas includes.


That is not a good opening paragraph. There is no proper thesis statement. A thesis statement gives the main point of your essay. Never mention your essay, your writing, or what you are going to write about in the opening paragraph. Write from your own experience. For example:

When my parents were young, students didn't even dream of studying abroad, except if their families were very rich. Now it is common to apply for scholarships and grants to get a university degree in a university in the US, UK or other European country. However wonderful this opportunity is, there are also some negative consequences.

The underlined is a thesis statement. You follow by the positive aspects of "wonderful" and also mention the associated difficulties.


Generally speaking, a student will benefit from living aboard and studying there. Firstly, First, every country has its diverse traditions and customs, so it is good for us to discover them. For example, Chileans have a surprisingly unique way to celebrate New Year celebrating way is spending New Year's Eve; they go to the cemeteries to be with the dead. Therefore, some kinds of traditional celebrations like that probably make us curious and interested in. Secondly, Second, we will have a chance to study with more effective and modern studying methods that help us to learn easily (misplaced) such as theories combine practicing, (??) going on an excursion, studying with smart televisions and robots, being encouraged to organize a community project, etc (Never use ellipses, "etc." or phrases like "and so on" in formal essays.) so we will become more knowledgeable to develop our countries when we return. (This knowledge and experience will enable us to develop our countries...)

Notwithstanding, attending a foreign university getting foreign schooling also has some drawbacks. Culture shock is one of them. We cannot be accustomed to it (a completely new culture) right away; it may take us two weeks or one month to adjust, especially for some of who have been familiar to (are accustomed to ) our country's lifestyles, it can take us years. For instance, Asians have difficulty being getting used to the greet methods are kissing cheeks and hugging each other when they study in Western countries. (ungrammatical) Or some left-handed people feel uncomfortable in the UAE because using the left hand when they are eating is considered gross. Otherwise, if we have a habit of sitting in the back of a cab, then it is rude in Australia.

Without any doubt, not only does the trend of overseas studies have the positive aspectsthat is its modern studying facilities and a chance for us to explore the culture but also cover a downside is shocking people (ungrammatical) with those unfamiliar cultures.

- I used Not only....but also inversion in my conclusion, why did you delete 'not only'? 'Without any doubt, not only does the trend of overseas studies'

If you don't know this grammar point, watch this https://www.grammarbank.com/not-only-but-also.html

- 'especially for some of who have been familiar to (are accustomed to ) our country's lifestyles, it can take us years'. Can you explain why 'have been familiar to' doesn't make sense?

We now live in an age when many of us have a chance to study in another country to get a university degree. It is different from many years ago that students just stayed in their province and went to college. Howere awesome this oppoturnity is, there are some negative consequences that need noticing.

Generally speaking, a student will benefit from living aboard and studying there. First, every country has its diverse traditions and customs, so it is good for us to discover. For example, Chileans have a surprisingly unique way to celebrate New Year's Eve; they go to cemeteries to be with the dead. Therefore, some kinds of traditional celebrations like that probably make us curious and interested. Second, we will have a chance to study with more effective and modern studying methods such as practicing in a labotory, going on an excursion, studying with smart televisions and robots, being encouraged to organize and join a community project, lecturing and giving a speech in public and other similar methods. Obviously, those experience and knowledge that we have got from studying there will enable us to develop our countries.

Notwithstanding, attending foreign university also has some drawbacks. Culture shock is one of them. We cannot be accustomed to an extremely new culture right away; it may take us two weeks or one month to adjust, especially for some of who have been familiar to our country's lifestyles, it can take us years. For instance, Asians have difficulty getting used to the greeting methods which are kissing cheeks and hugging each other when they study in Western countries. Or some left-handed people feel uncomfortable in the UAE because using the left hand when eating is considered gross. If we have a habit of sitting in the back of a cab, then it is rude in Australia.

Without any doubt, not only overseas do studies have the positive aspect which are modern facilities and a chance for us to explore the culture but also have a downside of shocking people with unfamiliar cultures.

Joyce Rossevelt I used Not only....but also inversion in my conclusion, why did you delete 'not only'? '

You did not use the "not only, but also" sequence correctly.


Not only must the second clause be in agreement or alignment with the first, but it should also be even more striking.

Here are some further examples of correct usage.

He likes to impress his friends. Not only does he have the latest iPhone and electronic gadgets, but he also has a brand-new, top-of-the-line customized red Ferrari.

He was ravenously hungry. Not only did he eat the entire pizza, but he also consumed three dishes of chocolate ice cream.

She is a wonderful performer. Not only does she sing beautifully, but she also dances like a professional ballerina.

Attending university in another country is a fantastic opportunity. Not only will you study under the best professors in the best facilities in the world, but you will also taste new kinds of food and make lifelong friends who share your interests and passions.

So you can use either of these two conclusions.

The first is closest to what you wrote. It uses the emphatic "do" and "but" as a contrast between two clauses with opposing ideas.

The second uses the "not only... but also" construct, with a separate sentence using "however" as a transitional adverb to contrast the downside.

1. Without any doubt, not only overseas do studies do have the positive aspects which are modern facilities and a chance for us to explore the culture, but they also have a downside of shocking the newly arriving students with unfamiliar cultures.

2. Without any doubt, not only does studying overseas give us the opportunity to learn in modern facilities, but it also gives us the chance to explore new cultures and make new friends. However, it also can have the downside aspect of shocking the newly arriving students with unfamiliar cultures.

Joyce Rossevelt- 'especially for some of who have been familiar to (are accustomed to ) our country's lifestyles, it can take us years'. Can you explain why 'have been familiar to' doesn't make sense?

The phrase is "be familiar with". It means that you aware of the subject, and know something about it, but they are not any expert.
e.g.

Almost everybody is familiar with Einstein's equation, E= mc2, but they really don't know what it means.


it may take us two weeks or one month to adjust. But for those who are ingrained in their country's lifestyles, it can take years.
