During the past four years, I have learned a lot of professional knowledge and practical skills, but gradually, I realize it is not enough. In my opinion, further study is actually urgent for me to realize and finally achieve self-value. Life is precious, it is necessary to catch any opportunity for self-development, especially in the competitive modern society. Therefore, I prefer to go on for further education.
There are several reasons.
I have been deeply impressed by the academic atmosphere when I came here last summer. In my opinion, as one of the most famous ******in our country, it provide people with enough room to get further enrichment. This is the first reason.
The second one is I am long for doing research in ******throughout my life. Its a pleasure to be with my favorite ******for lifetime. I suppose this is the most important factor in my decision. Thirdly, I learnt a lot from my *****job during the past two years. However, I think further study is still urgent for me to realize self-value. Life is precious. It is necessary to seize any chance for self-development, especially in this competitive modern world.
In a word, I am looking forward to making a solid foundation for future profession after two years study here.
Good morning. My name is ××, you can also call me Eason, I has such an English name just because the pronunciation of it is like my Chinese name. I graduated from this university last year, and major in computer science, I like computer very much, especially in multimedia technology, and wanted to make some achievement in this field, but when I finished my school, I realized that what I had learned was not enough for this target, I thought it would be great if I can continue my interest in that, so that was why I choose to further my study with a master degree.
I believe studying home is preferable though many students are enthusiastic about studying abroad to pursue their higher education. On the one hand, you don't have to take foreign language tests such as TOEFL or GRE. This can save you a tremendous amount of time, money and effort, allowing you to put much energy into to your academic field. In addition, if you study at home, you can stay with your family and old friends. Meanwhile, while studying at home, you can enjoy the intimate friendship and comfortable family atmosphere which you can only dream of in a foreign university, where you will be accompanied by your own shadow most of the time. For these reasons, it is more realistic and sensible to pursue one's higher education at home than studying abroad.
In a word, compared with studying abroad, I prefer to study at home. For one thing, it saves money for my family, and relieves the pressure of my parents. For another, studying at home may make me better than studying abroad, if I go to a terrible school abroad.

1. What do you want to say about your family?
2. How many people are there in your family?
3. Do you have any brothers or sisters?
4. Are you the oldest/youngest in your family?
5. What do your parents do?
There are four members in my family: My parents, my cute cat of 9 years old and me. My father is a technician in the Fujian TV Station. He often goes out on business. So most of the housework is done by my industrious mom. Climbing at weekends is our common interest. The fresh air and natural beauty can help us get rid of tiredness. They can strengthen our relation, too. During my preparing for coming here, my parents' love and support have always been my power. And I hope in future I will be able to repay them.
It's my great honor to talk about my family. My family is very warm and harmonious. My parents are typical Chinese farmers. Both of them are diligent and kind. In order to support the family and pay the expensive tuition fee, my father always goes to many big cities to find some jobs. Then he can earn more money. Though it's very difficulty and toilful, he can stick on a whole year.
While my father goes out, all the work in the family is left for my mother. She has to deal with all the housework and farm work. She devotes all her efforts to the family, but she never complains. Besides, she has to look after my little sister, who is very lovely and docile.
That's my family, plain but melodious. I know that knowledge can change one's life. So I will study harder, no matter how difficulty it is. I will stick on and never give up. Then I will repay my parents, using all my efforts to make my family better and better. In the end, I hope you can give me a chance to further my education. Only in this way can I create a steady and more hopeful condition to change my life and my family.
That's all. Thank you!
