Topic: do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
All high school students should be required to have three years of studying a foreign language.
Learning new language is the great thing to do, but it is not easy to do. There are some people think that high school should be required to have three years for studying foreign language, others think that studying foreign language is optional for students. From my point of view, I totally agree with opinion that the students should be required to have three years of studying foreign language and I would like to illustrate some reasons to support for my opinion.
First of all, learning foreign language not only provide for students the way to communicate with people around the world, but also helps students can access knowledge from others countries such as from books, film, articles.So, they can expand their knowledge about the world in order to studying better. For example, most Vietnamese students while doing the assignment can easy find helpful documents from English book or French books if they have studied the English course in the high school or the college.
Secondly, studying foreign language in the high school bring students an opportunity to get a good job after they graduate. To day, the business is developing very quickly; the integration and communication among countries are the trend of world business, thus, all good job for students require high level in foreign language. Using smoothly foreign language, especially English, is the key to compete with other students on the way get a good job for them.
Finally, studying foreign language contributes to the development of social skill of students. In the foreign language class, most of students are required practice speaking a lot, and they often have to do oral presentation or discussion in front of all students and teacher. In this way, they can develop their speaking skill, it makes them can contact with their partner in their business are easier, and also help them can present a subject or protect their opinion in a conference well.
In conclusion, studying foreign brings students a lot of advantages such as developing social skills, a chance to get a good job or expand knowledge about the world. So, I believe that all high schools should require students to have at least three years of studying a foreign language.
