About vacations

I agree with the latter viewpoint. I mean that students should have several short vacations throughout the year. I am a university student now, so I think some reasons for it from the live point of view.

In the first place, I want to tell you about the reason why students essentially had some vacations. It is because of the comfortable temperatures to study. For example, students usually have summer vacation because summer is too hot for students to study. So summer vacation allows students to study in home or library which install air conditioner. Water vacation also allow to learn at home installed heating. That’s why we have traditionally vacations in accordance with temperatures to study. It is one of the good evidences that even in Japan, influenced by the place to live in, Japanese students have different starting time for vacations. For example,Students in Hokkaido starts their summer vacation later than students in other cities. It depends on the temperature. Considering above reasons, if we do have one long vacation in place of some short vacations, we have to study at school however hot or cool. Therefore it is reasonable to have some short vacations adapting to the temperatere of climates.

Secondly, I have some vacations not only to study in comfortable condition but also to play. During the term of school, students just tend to study.Students busy studying.Therefore what we have several short vacations one year, it become the good refleshment. We can enjoy not only studying but also traveling. However, if students have just one long vacations, it is inconvenient for them to refresh in spare moments from their work.

In conclusion, I agree with that students should have several vacations throughout the year. It means we should keep as it is now. Interval vacations allow students to feel refleshment and relax after hard working during the term. It also enable for students to not only study but also play something except for studying. And it contributes for them to be healthy because the temperature’ concern.
