1. Andy and Thu are discussing their preferences for different further education pathways. Put the lines ir their conversation in order.
Andy và Thu đang thảo luận về sở thích của họ cho những con đường giáo dục khác nhau. Đặt các dòng trong cuộc trò chuyện của họ theo thứ tự.
(a)Andy: But it will cost a lot of money. Why do we have to live away from home when we have the Internet? We can save the money for a research or a second degree.
(b) Thu: Cloud learning is really convenient if you want to study from your home or office, but I’d like to experience campus life. I believe that face-to-face teaching and learning will bring the best results. I can also make a lot of friends and meet international students.
(c) Andy: You’re right. You need time to absorb the knowledge and apply it in real life before you start pursuing another degree. That’s why I plan to work and study at the same time, so I can earn money and gain practical experience.
(d) Thu: Getting a master’s degree or a PhD will be worth it, but I’d rather pursue a postgraduate degree after gaining some working experience. Then I will have some practical skills. Education is a lifelong process; we don’t need to rush through college or graduate school.
(e) Andy: Have you seen this website, Thu? I think I have found a higher education programme at a Viet Nam’s university that will best suit me. All the courses are cloud-based.
(f) Thu: Working and studying for a degree can be very demanding, Andy! But it’s your own choice and you seem determined. The most important thing is to keep learning and developing your skills

Gợi ý đáp án:
I am writing to ask you for some information and advice on further education.
I am going to finish secondary school in May and I have been thinking a lot about taking a gap year or pursuing further education immediately. Here are the points that worry me most.
First, I want to consult you about the advantages and disadvantages of taking a gap year. I know that a lot of school leavers in your country prefer taking a gap year before deciding to pursue further education. Would a gap year look good on my college application?
If I pursue further education immediately, what kind of attendance mode should I choose? There are excellent universities in your country, and a bachelor’s degree from one of them will definitely help me to find a good job easily. However, the tuition fees and living expenses will be very high, and I am not sure if a scholarship will cover all the costs. Do distance learning degrees offer the same content as campus-based degrees?
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
