[size=150]TOEFL Essay review[/size]
Some people spend their entire lives in one place. Others move a number of times throughout their lives, looking for a better job, house,…. . Which do you prefer?
Although there are some good reasons to stay in one place for the entire life - for instance the wife, the children and probably friends - I would prefer to move from one location to another for several reasons. Travelling the whole life will definitely broaden my mind and bring myself further, because it is possible to learn a lot of different languages, to get to know new people and to live in societies with diverse cultural behaviours.
Because of the globalization and its world connecting impact, improving the language skills is one of the most essential things to remain interesting for well paid jobs. In addition, speaking a lot of different languages affects the social capability in a positive way, because it is possible to communicate with citizens from around the world, without having problems.
Another, not less essential point is the possibility to get to know a lot of new people in different countries in the world. From my point of view it is very interesting to see diverse behaviours, which are influenced from the culture where the people grew up. Diverse food, music and parties are only a few things that change rapidly in different regions, respectively, countries.
Finally, the different cultures all across the world are very fascinating for me. I love it to go on sightseeing, and get impressed of gigantic or historical buildings very easily. Nevertheless, to me, it is indispensable to live in a country for a time to understand the cultural behaviours of a folk, which represents, in a way, the buildings in their countries.
Summarizing, there is no doubt for me, that a persons, who travel a lot during their life gather some experiences, which are otherwise not possible to gain.
