Many pupils go on
school trips. Some people say they are interesting and educational. Other
people say that they are a waste of time and children should learn in the
Most teachers are convinced that there
is more to learning than lessons in the classroom. That is why they try to
create memorable learning experiences with the help of educational school
School trips include a wide range of
outdoor educational and residential courses, designed to stimulate, educate and
motivate pupils. To my mind, school trips help teachers inspire pupils and
bring subject areas to life. School trips broaden children's mind, improve
their knowledge of history and geography and make their lives interesting and
eventful. Whether pupils want an educational school trip within their country
or abroad their aim is the same: to enjoy sightseeing, to discover new things,
to meet interesting people and to get wonderful impressions and learning
experiences which educate, excite and inspire.
However, some parents don't think that
school trips are essential. They believe that pupils can learn everything
staying in the classroom. Other parents don't like the fact that they have to
pay for most school trips. Moreover, Moms and Dads are often afraid of possible
dangers and difficulties which may arise during any school trip. Nevertheless,
statistics show that school trips are usually safe for children. But reasonable
safety measures are still required.
To sum up, a school trip is a
challenging, rewarding and always exciting experience. Pupils will have fun
while learning new skills and capabilities. There is no better way to foster
team building, positive attitudes and a sense of personal achievement. I think
that school trips will certainly benefit pupils' performance back at school.
There are people, who
think that the best way to travel in a town or in a city is on foot. However a
lot of others prefer driving a car or using public transport.
Today everybody understands that time is
money. We can't afford to spend much time on the road, so we use cars and
public transport to travel faster.
On the one hand, we shouldn't forget
that we can use our legs. In my opinion, when people travel on foot, they can
see much more on their way and enjoy the sights of a town or a city. We can
stop wherever we want and admire a beautiful church or monument or drop at a
cafe or a shop. We won't be stuck in a traffic jam for several hours and we
will certainly avoid road accidents. What is more, travelling on foot is much
healthier that travelling by car or by bus. Walking is a perfect physical
exercise that strengthens the immune system, improves mental health and helps
prevent many diseases.
On the other hand, travelling by car or
by bus saves much time and effort. A lot of people prefer driving cars as they
have speed and comfort combined. When you travel by car, you don't depend on
the weather. For example, if it rains you won't get soaked. If it is cold, you
can turn on a heater. While driving, you can listen to music or the latest news
on the radio. Public transport is not as popular as cars. Nevertheless, thousands
of people use it every day of their lives.
To conclude, it's up to you to decide
whether to travel on foot, to drive a car or to use public transport. As for
me, I am young and energetic and I am for travelling on foot.
Many people prefer to
travel abroad; others say that there is much to be seen in our own country.
Most people find travelling very
exciting. It gives them an opportunity to enjoy sightseeing, to discover new
things, to meet interesting people, to rest physically and morally and to get
For me there is hardly anything more
interesting and exciting than a journey to a foreign country. I've been to
London, Paris and Rome and it is the most wonderful experience in my life.
Travelling abroad gives me a chance to feel thousands of miles away from home,
to visit great cities and small villages, to admire foreign architecture,
cuisine and culture, to make friends and what not. What is more, it is the best
way to broaden your mind, to improve your knowledge of history and geography
and to make your life interesting.
However, a lot of people are sure that
there is much to be seen in our own country. Indeed, it is difficult to
disagree with them. There are many places of interest in my native town:
ancient churches, monuments, museums and parks. One can go to Moscow and visit
its theatres, cathedrals, art galleries and what not. The Kremlin attracts
thousands of tourists as it is the heart of Moscow and the centre of the
Russian government. St. Petersburg, the former capital of Russia, is known for
its magnificent palaces, famous museums, beautiful buildings and wide streets.
Besides, there are many small towns and villages in our country which are
definitely worth visiting.
To conclude, we should learn everything
about our own country first of all. But if we want to learn more about the
world around us and to expand the mind, we should travel abroad.
The car has become
the most popular means of transport in the history of the world. However, some
people say that the world would be better off without cars.
Nowadays, almost every family has a car.
A lot of people say that travelling by car is very convenient, while others
are sure that cars cause many problems.
In my opinion, the car is one of the
most comfortable means of transport. Firstly, travelling by car is fast and it
helps you save plenty of time. Secondly, it is comfortable because you don't
have to buy any tickets and your car is always at your disposal. Thirdly, when
you travel by car, you don't depend on the weather. While driving, you can
listen to music or the latest news on the radio. And finally, you can stop
where you want and have a snack or enjoy nature.
On the other hand, travelling by car has
a number of disadvantages. First and foremost, it is bad for ecology and
health. Cars produce exhaust fumes which make the air foul and destroy the
ozone layer protecting the Earth from the dangerous rays of the Sun. The car is
not a safe means of travel as there are a lot of car and bus crashes.
Travelling by car is not very convenient if the trip is long. Besides, it is
rather expensive as petrol is not cheap. What is more, when we travel by car,
we may be stuck in a traffic jam for several hours.
To sum up, I think it is rather
difficult to do without cars nowadays. But if we want to be healthy, we should
sometimes ride a bike or walk.
Some people think
that travelling by plane is very comfortable and convenient. Others say that it
has a number of disadvantages.
Nowadays we can't imagine our lives
without travelling. We tend to travel longer distances and at much higher
speeds. Most people say there is nothing like travel by air for them.
Personally, I think that travelling by
plane is very comfortable, quick and thrilling. It helps me save plenty of time
and gives me an opportunity to visit out-of-the-way parts of the world. I don't
have to worry about anything during the flight. I can relax, listen to music,
read a newspaper or take a nap. The stewardess will take care of passengers
during the flight and will help them get comfortable in their seats. I can
always enjoy good service and tasty food. What is more, travelling by plane
gives me a wonderful opportunity to look through the porthole and to admire
However, some people don't like
travelling by air. Firstly, they complain that it takes them much time to check
in at the airport and to have their baggage weighed. Secondly, some flights may
be delayed or cancelled because of unfavourable weather conditions. Thirdly,
those people who are airsick will hardly find the flight very nice. Finally,
aircraft engines emit noise and gases and contribute to air pollution and
global warming. Besides, a lot of people doubt that travelling by plane is
safe. They are afraid of plane crashes and terrorists. But as a rule much
attention is paid to security: all luggage is screened and all passengers are
To conclude, it is up to you to decide
whether to travel by plane or not. Anyway, all means of travel have their
advantages and disadvantages.
Some people consider
hitch-hiking to be the best way of travelling. Others think that hitchhiking
Hitch-hikers travel by getting rides in
other people's cars. When they want drivers to give them a lift, they stand on
the roadside and raise their hand or put out their thumb. Most hitch-hikers
also carry a sign with the name of the place they want to go to. But is it safe
to travel in such a way?
Personally, I think that hitch-hiking is
a unique opportunity to see different cities and countries. This way of
travelling is for enthusiastic people who want to reduce their road expenses.
If you want to travel but have no money, hitch-hiking is a single way out.
Hitch-hiking will help you get where you want to go for nothing.
But nowadays hitch-hiking is less common
than it used to be some years ago. There have been cases of hitch-hikers or the
drivers who picked them up being attacked or killed. That is why people,
especially young women, should avoid hitching alone. It is also necessary to be
always friendly and polite with drivers in order to avoid conflicts. Besides, a
lot of people say that hitchhiking is not for those who like comfort.
Sometimes you will have to walk, that is why you should travel light. You
should also prepare for your trip beforehand. You should have a good idea of
how to get where you are going and be informed about road conditions and
To sum up, hitch-hiking is both exciting
and dangerous. Anyway, if you have decided to hitchhike, you should consult
other people and ask them to share their impressions.
Some people prefer
travelling by train, while others say that it has a number of disadvantages.
Nowadays people travel more often than
they did in the past. There are different means of travel that provide you
with comfort and security, so passengers have a great variety of choice available
for them. Travelling by train is very popular with many people, though it has a
number of disadvantages as well.
I am fond of travelling by train because
I have speed, comfort and pleasure combined. While travelling I can walk
around, look through the windows to enjoy a splendid view of the whole
countryside and sit where I can stretch my legs. If I am hungry, I can go to
the dining-car and have a meal. Trains can run in bad weather. What is more, as
trains are electrically-powered, they are considered to be less harmful to the
environment than other forms of transport. The service is popular with
passengers because it is fast, efficient, comfortable and quiet.
However, some people say that they don't
like travelling by train. Firstly, they always have to stand in a long line in
order to buy train tickets beforehand. Secondly, you cannot stop where you
want. Thirdly, when you travel by train, you always have to get to the railway
station first. Finally, travelling by train is not very convenient if the trip
is long. Of course, travelling by train is not as fast as travelling by plane.
But one of the latest inventions is a high-speed train that can run more than 200
To conclude, it is up to you to decide
whether to travel by train or not. Anyway, travelling by train has both
advantages and disadvantages.
Medical travel is
becoming more and more popular with many people. However, others say that it
has many disadvantages.
Travelling abroad for medical treatment
has been increasingly growing lately. But why do many people choose to go to
foreign clinics and is medical travel as beneficial as it seems to be?
Medical tourists go to foreign countries
for different reasons. Firstly, many patients want to undergo certain medical
procedures for lower prices. For example, the cost of different operations in
India, Thailand or South Africa is much lower than in the United States or
Western Europe. Secondly, medical travel gives people the opportunity not only
to receive first-rate care from highly qualified specialists, but also to have
a holiday in an exotic country. Finally, many people go abroad in order to
avoid long waiting periods. In such countries as the USA or Britain a person
may wait for a certain medical procedure for a year or even longer. But in
other countries a patient can receive the needed treatment immediately.
Nevertheless, some people say that
undergoing treatment abroad may be rather risky. For instance, infectious
diseases in such countries as Thailand or Malaysia are different from those in
North America and Europe. Foreign diseases may be extremely dangerous to
weakened patients. What is more, long flights should be avoided after certain
medical procedures. Additionally, some holiday-related activities such as
sunbathing or swimming may worsen patients' health. But to my mind, medical
tourism is great because people can combine leisure with medical procedures.
To conclude, medical travel can save your
money and give you an opportunity to rest and visit other countries. However,
one should take all possible risks into consideration before making the final
decision to go abroad.
Some people are fond
of travelling to exotic countries, while others say that exotic travel is
Many people dream of exciting travels to
sunny, beautiful and interesting places in exotic countries. But every tourist
must remember that there are a number of risks that they need to be aware of.
In my opinion, exotic travel gives you
an opportunity to participate in exciting experiences. In exotic countries you
can ride a camel or an elephant, enjoy modern cities or picturesque little
villages, admire ancient temples and what not. Travelling to exotic countries
many tourists would like to watch the daily life of local people, to see
mountains, jungles and beaches. I believe that exotic travel is very rewarding
because it can lead to totally new understanding of diverse cultures and
Nevertheless, arranging a perfect travel
to exotic places is not an easy task. Travel agencies show tourists colorful
catalogues with beautiful beaches and modern hotels. Most people find it
difficult to explore this immensity of offers and spot the one that would let
them admire a truly stunning seaside, good service, clean beaches and high
quality hotels. Many tourists feel ill at ease when they go to an exotic
country because they do not know much about its traditions and do not understand
the language. Some tourists may dislike the local food. Furthermore, they have
no natural immunity to foreign diseases. In addition, tourists may have
problems with insects, public transport, thieves, insistent street vendors and
To conclude, many people say that once
you have tasted the excitement of visiting exotic destinations, you'll never
want to stop. However, tourists must take precautions in order to avoid
unpleasant situations and to remain safe and secure.
