When children get the good grades in the examination, parents would like to reward them with some money. In terms of this choice, can you talk about one advantage and one disadvantage?
The apparent advantage is that the money can well help students to relax themselves. Having the rewarding money, students can travel to other countries or cities, getting to know the interesting local people, the delicious local foods, appreciating the beautiful sceneries and so on. The money helps them keep a balance between study and relaxation.
The disadvantage is that the money may lead students to ignore the knowledge itself. Sometimes learning has nothing to do with money. For example, well mastering English can be convenient in your future life when you take a travel or go on business to other countries. Students learning English are supposed to learn for skills rather than money.
Do you agree or disagree with the statement that it is never too late for people, especially the elderly, to get the university degree?
I definitely agree with the statement.
For one thing, each one has the right to get the university degree. No matter who you are, the youngster or the middle age or the elderly, as long as people have the dream to be better, they should be encouraged to receive better education.
For one thing, the educational benefit is conducive to the society. Imagine one 66-year-old grandpa getting the master degree in one university, although he may be retired, yet staying at home, he can educate his grandchildren on how to study, how to live a decent life, how to be happy and so on. His grandchildren may get better guidance.
