Actually, my mother studied at the foreign university. My mom studied abroad in Italy, for the classical music. She went there since she was 19 years old, and she was there for about 14 years. So, she became the best soprano in the world, and I also want to study abroad in USA. I want to be a musical singer, and I think studying for ourselve's dream job in the country where is famous for that, such as Italy for classical music, and USA for musicals, is very good for us. If you want to be a soccer player, you can study and pracrice in Brazil. Well, of course it's challenging, but it will help you to do great in the work you'd studied. I want to be the greatest musical star in the world, so I've been planning to go to Broadway and practice hard. If I debut in there, and I have no doubt about I will be famous all over the world. And there are so many benefits about it: 1. You can learn foreign languages naturally. 2. You can learn the history of the subject, or the other ideas. 3. You can learn the other country's own cultures. 4. Also you can make the foreign friends, too! but there are several disadvantages, too. 1. You can be distracted. 2. You must do all the things in the FOREIGN country. 3. No one can help you. 4. And in my mother's opinion, she said homesickness is the most hard thing you should bear in the other country. (But still, I want to study and spend my time in USA!)
