Benefits of Field Trips
Field trips have a lot of benefits, such as hands-on experience and involvement. Field trips can expose us as students to experiences that will be more meaningful and more memorable than the classroom, or to experience that we can’t experience in a classroom. Even if we could see the same thing in a classroom setting, it doesn’t necessarily have the same impact. The disadvantages of the field trips is that they take a lot of time and energy; however, field trips have many advantages such as improving our English language. For instance, meet new people and have small talk with them. We also get experience making conversation, the same that we did last Wednesday. I went with my friends Faisal and Aziz to talk with people and get experience about the Cherry Blossoms; it was a good thing. The other thing is to discover new places, like going to museums and seeing a lot of old things such as unique stones and things that we haven’t seen before. Last Wednesday, all the students and the professors went to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossoms. The cherry trees were a gift from Japan to the United States after the war; and WHAT A GREAT GIFT! The last thing is to have fun, and to spend our time to see new and interesting places, and also to meet and make a new friends.
