Living in a world which is full of changes and challenges,we are confronted with new problems every single day. Of all the issues, one might disturb the students the most, and it is if we have two options: to attend college at home or abroad. As for me, I prefer to choose the latter.
Why ,you may wonder , should I would like to study abroad ? The reasons responsible for it can be listed as follows.
Among the most important reasons cited by people is that to study abroad，directly or indirectly，can not only broaden our eyes and enrich our life experience，which is of great importance in one’s growth.
What’s more，to attend college abroad can give us an independent personality and more globalized vision towards the world, if it were not for those two attributes, how could we achieve great goals in this dog-eat-dog world .
Above all, in such a society where emphasis，more often than not ， is laid on quality of education and information, to study abroad , if we had the chance, must be a good choice.
To study abroad, so at least it seems to me, is preferable for those who have the ability to afford the fees, in the process of which we will develop an innovative thought mode .
As a proverb goes, there is no difficulty that an innovative thought mode can not solve, no door that an innovative thought mode can not open, no mountain that an innovative thought mode can not surmount.
Nowadays, there has been a heated discussion as to the best choice in selecting the major. Views on the topic vary greatly among people from different walks of life. Some believe that it is a better choice to acquire knowledge in science, but others consider it better to dig into the humanities.
I totally agree with the former choice for the reasons presented below. Above all, it is good for the whole society because if more peoplein this society can choose to acquire scientific knowledge,it is more likely that the society will become better and better. Also, it is good for the person himself/herself. For example, it can help him/her become a person of practice rather than a person of words, which will make him/her a more usefulperson.
From my perspective, it is crucial that modern education should encourage people tobe practitioners rather than pedants. Also it is crucial that people should understand the meaning and value of scientific knowledge. Only in this way can we achieve greater success.

From my perspective, it is crucial that modern education should encourage people tobe wise meditators rather than mad scientists. Also it is crucial that people should understand the meaning and value ofhumanities. Only in this way can we achieve greater success.
With the flourish of education industry, modern students are faced with more alternatives to continue their further education. Both attending a vocational college or a university serves as two main options for the high school graduates. In terms of which to choose and what to be taken into consideration, I shall advise as follows:
Primarily, self-orientation matters the most when it comes to a issue like this. Obviously, the main task of vocational college is cultivating human resource with practical capability. Instead, university serves as the cradle of academic researchers in different areas. Therefore, being aware of your self-expectation with a clear future blueprint lays a foundation for this important decision.
Apart from what has been mentioned above, personal interest also plays a key role in it. For both passion and motivation are derived from interest, which not only decide how far you can reach academically and professionally but also how happy and fulfilled you will be .
To sum up, a clear recognition of self orientation and personal interest will decide whether you will tick the box of vocational college or university. Only in this way can we get the most out of the further education.
Tang dynasty started in 618 and ended in 907. It was the most splendid period in China’s history. With around 300 years’ development, Tang dynasty China became the most prosperous power. The capital Chang’an was the biggest cosmopolitan across the world at that time. During that period, it was economically developed, commercially prosperous and stable in social order. What’s more, its border was open to the outside world. With the urbanization and the increasing wealth, arts and literature moved forward as well. Libai and Dufu were poets famous for their writings in the concise and natural style. Their poems tugged on the heartstrings of scholars and folks. Even nowadays, many of their poems are widely read and recited by children and adults.
The Song dynasty began from 960 and ended in 1279. During the period, China had witnessed huge growth in the economy, making it the most advanced economy in the world. Science and technology, philosophy and mathematics also flourished at that time. In the Song dynasty, China was the first country in the world to issue paper money, use gunpowder and invent movable-type printing. With rapidly increasing population, more and more people moved into the city, in which entertainment venues were very busy. People could enjoy various social life, getting together to appreciate and trade precious artworks. The Song dynasty also enjoyed an advanced government system in the world. All of the government officials were selected and appointed through the competitive examination.
The Ming Dynasty, which reigned China for 276 years, is described as one of the greatest epochs with orderly governance and social stability in human history. During this period, the development of handicraft industry promoted the development of market economy and urbanization. Large scale of commodities, including wine and silk, were sold in the market. Meanwhile, many foreign goods such as clocks and tobacco were imported. Business centers like Beijing, Nanjing, Yangzhou, Suzhou were taking shape in succession. It was also in Ming Dynasty that Zheng He led the seven large-scale expeditions to the Indian Ocean. Particularly worth mentioning is that three of the four great classics in Chinese literature are written during the Ming Dynasty.
