Taking a Gap Year Before University
A gap year is when someone decides to take a year off from studying to do something else, typically travelling. In recent years taking a gap year has become very popular especially before starting university. Young people will often spend a year living in a different country or travelling around the world experiencing different places and cultures. Most people consider a gap year to be a beneficial thing to do, but maybe there are in fact some drawbacks to taking such a long break from their studies.
