Travel Is the Best Teacher (by 12th grader)

Helen – the 12th grader

(The student graduated from NTU last year. It was her writing 5 years ago)

 

There is a saying that the world is a book, and those who don’t travel stay on one page permanently.  It can be a relaxing recreation to set out on a journey, while it sometimes plays the role of a beneficial teacher who makes people grow.

 

When it comes to the benefits traveling bring, broadening one’s horizon always comes first.  Being in a unfamiliar place, travelers are sure to be overwhelmed with local cultures that are totally different from their homelands.  Both the scenes of the area and the lives locals live will definitely impress anyone taking a glimpse at the place.  However, the main reason making travel the best teacher is that it forces people to become more independent.  Travelers are destined to be confronted with unpredictable circumstances happening during the trip.  Since the journey will not go on unless they figure out solutions, people have no choice but to tackle with the problems rather than shrink from them, which helps develop abilities of dealing with sudden incidents.  With such benefits travel brings, it is no exaggeration that travel is the best teacher.
