I think that taking a gap year is a very good idea because a gap year is a big adventure in your life and it may give you a lot of new things like getting to know new cultures and learning other languages, for example. But these are not the only reasons why I want to take a gap year. I want to take a gap year because now the universities encourage it and the employers do it too because in a gap year you earn some experience, some maturity and education. In a gap year you may have to work to earn your own money, like having a part-time job and with that obligation earn and save your own money. It’s like survival! So, to conclude, I think that a gap year is a very good experience because it gives you a lot of good things and one day it can change a decision of an employer to hire or not hire you!
