Long or Short Vacations?
Every student likes vacations. Some of them prefer several short vacations throughout the year, since they can have a rest now and then. But others would like to have one long vacation each year, because they want to budget abundant time freely. As a result, there have been many arguments on this topic. From my point of view, it is advisable for the students to have several short vacations.
Among countless factors which influence my viewpoints, there are three conspicuous aspects as follows. In the first place, short vacations set the students free from the burdensome study every now and then, which is beneficial for both of their physical and mental health. During the school life, rest is necessary. Appropriate relaxation refreshes students and gives them enough motivation and energy to continue learning. As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But the rest should be reasonable. A long vacation will do harm to the condition of the students, and too much free time will make students become lazy, instead of helping them. In the second place, having short vacations is to the advantage of the study continuity. We all know that study is the most important task for the students. If students have a long vacation, they will leave school, which is the best study environment, for a too long time. Owing to their limited self-educated ability and knowledge, most students cannot study systematically or regularly.
At last they may not study well, and even forget what they have learned in the previous period, while short vacations will not influence the teaching arrangement. What’s more, short vacations will allow the students to review and summarize the knowledge on their own. Students learn new knowledge at school, and they need their own time to think over and understand it truly. At school the teachers have their teaching plans, and will not stop to wait for a particular student. So the short vacations should be made good use of. They are opportunities for the students to review and learn by themselves.
To sum up, students should have several short vacations throughout the year instead of having a long vacation each year. From the perspective of the students’ physical and mental health, study continuity and self-learning, we can see that short vacations will help students to learn better.
