It is not necessary for people to travel to other places to learn about the culture. We can learn as much as from books, films, and the Internet. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Some people state that there is no need to travel to different places to know about the culture as we can acquire this knowledge through reading books or watching films. From my perspective, I partly disagree with this statement.


On the one hand, I believe that learning new cultures via books, films, and the Internet is beneficial to a certain extent. Many books provide images and pictures to illustrate, helping us understand more easily while films provide both images and sound which make their contents more lively. Furthermore, cultures can be learned from the Internet as we can easily get access to video clips and articles. Also, we can leave comments and read other comments to see cultures from different angles.


On the other hand, I am convinced that it is better for individuals to travel to learn about new cultures. First, some information about cultures in books and films are out of date and sometimes untrue. Therefore, it is of great importance that we travel and experience on our own to have a deeper understanding about that culture. Second, traveling cost is now much more affordable, meaning to say, people can go to a foreign country to experience new cultures more easily. This gives them a more practical and realistic view on these cultures.


In conclusion, I believe that people should travel more to acquire new cultures instead of staying at home and watching films or reading books. However, they should also consider their financial status whether, for example, they can afford a flight to another country or not.
