9. Poor Grades and Cheating?

According to The Wall Street Journal, 8,000 Chinese students were expelled from American universities last year, and the reasons were poor grades and cheating. It is not good news for Chinese students. On the other side, in China, more and more people start to consider those students who study abroad as wealthy, and that they did poorly in domestic schools so they cannot be admitted in domestic high schools or universities.

I would like to say that the situation above only represents a small number. The majority of students studying abroad come from middle-class families. These thrifty students just hope to learn advanced knowledge, look at the diversity of the world, and become more independent through studying abroad. They study hard and work hard to overcome challenges and get more opportunities by themselves. They travel with friends and are willing to see a different world and culture  in the holidays.

根据华尔街日报,去年有8000名中国学生因为成绩不佳和作弊被美国大学开除。这对中国来生来说并不是个好消息。另一方面,在中国国内越来越多的人开始觉得留学生都是来自富裕家庭,他们因为成绩不合格而考不上国内高中或者大学所以才选择出国。

我想说的是以上的情况只来自少数。大部分留学生是来自中产阶级的家庭。这些节俭的中国学生只是想通过留学来学习到更先进的知识,看看这个多元化的世界并且变的更加独立。他们为了自己克服困难,得到更多的机会而努力学习和工作。他们常常和朋友在假期出外旅游去了解不一样的世界。
