Let’s go with the fourth text of our Summer Plan: “Democracy Prep: A Tough Approach To Education”. You’ll find it in your book, on page 88. For 1ºBCT students, as usual, I scanned it in PDF and JPG formats:

unnamed Text4

⇒ You know: answer down here in a comment, just with the numbered questions. Apart from that, I’d like you to write your opinion about this educational approach: Do you think it is a good one? Why or why not? Would you like to go to Democracy Prep? Why or why not? (It’s enough with 4 or 5 lines). Deadline: Monday, August the 7th.

    Do you think it is a good one? Why or why not? Would you like to go to Democracy Prep? Why or why not?
    I think that it is not good because it presses people to do things that might not want to, and I do not feel like going to that preparation, because I don’t like belonging to that system, I believe that officer worse than the current education to which we are accustomed.

    Learning Korean is important because:
    -Mastery of this lenguage shows students that they are capable of leaning anything.
    -It also impresses college and university admissions comittees
    -And it can help students future prospects

    COMENTARY
    In my opinion, this educational approach is a good one because you can learn important values as discipline, respect, enthusiasm, accountability and maturity but besides, I think it must be very hard to follow them, so I wouldn’t like to go to Democracy Prep.

    MY OPINION
    In my opinion I agree with the values of Democracy Prep’s schools: respect, discipline, enthusiasm, accountability and maturity, and I think that it is really important to educate with a strict mode, but on the other hand, I disagree with learning Korean language because the students who will not dedícate to business won’t need it.

  19. andrea parez garcia dijo:

    I agree with it because everybody has the right to be educated, above all, those young people who come from a poor background. On the other hand, these students must show discipline and work hard which is the basis of success in life.
