Going to study for a year in a different country i think that it's a good idea although there are advantages and desdtvantages.. Firstly, i belive thtat it's a good idea because of you can learn or improve a language, know other culture than yours and make new friends. However there are some disadvantages such as you'll miss your family, your friends, your country,etc. But at the same time you'll realize who are the people that will suport you despite the distance, so you'll know your real friends. Also it's so expensive, and some families can't afford to pay a lot of money.. To sum up, therefore the desadvantages i thinj that most people should go for a year in a different country. I've always wanted to go. If i where you, i'd try to convince your parents to let you go.
