It is hard to deny that the Erasmus programme provides quite a lot of advantages for the exchange students. First and foremost, it grants the students with lots of cultural experience. They are given a chance to get to know another country, its people, their lifestyle and traditions. Moreover, the programme helps the students break their language barrier. They have no other chance but to use the foreign language and use it everyday, in every daily situation. Furthermore, let‘s not forget that while spending time in another country, students make new friends, create unforgettable memories and get lots of priceless experience. They simply come out of their shell, become more flexible, brave and tolerant.
On the other hand, the exchange program also has its drawbacks. The main disadvantage that many students find difficult to overcome is separation from family and friends. They are taken to a completely unknown place – no familiar faces, different language, perhaps even different rules of living.
