With the technique of internet developing so rapidly, internet schools are available now, and for sure, the will be popular in the near future. However, what is also confirmed is that the traditional schools will not be replaced. As the result, we will be offered two options. For me, I would like to go to the traditional ones.
Now let us take a look at the advantages and the disadvantages of the two kinds of schools. Of course, I would like to begin the topic with my choice, the traditional schools.
First, when in this kind of schools, besides the knowledge, we learn how to deal with others as well. As is known, no one can be completely isolated from this society in which cooperation becomes more and more important. No one can accomplish a complicate project in his career only by himself. Therefore, as students, in order to prepare for our future careers, we have to learn teamwork, which we can not learn when always at home and facing the only the computers. In traditional schools, we meet our classmates everyday, we study with them, we cooperate with them, and we even compete with them, all of which are ways we learn skills of getting along with people around us.
Second, as far as my personal experience is concerned, a collectivity with solidarity can encourge us learn better. Friends share our ups and downs, offer help when we have difficulties in study and lend us hands if we are in trouble. The shortcoming is that, for those who live far away from schools, it takes too much time in their ways to schools and back.
As for the internet schools, we can save our transportation fees and time. We can learn everything without stepping out of the door. But all we face are the machines with no emotions. We should remember a fact that EQ is as important as IQ.
From the above I think the traditional schools have more advantages than the internet schools do. So traditional schools are my first choice.
