- Gain new perspectives
First of all, the reading passage argues that it is so crucial for students that visiting new places and see different cultures. On the other hand, the listening reports that they need to catch up missing subjects and study harder for it later. Its disadvantages overweigh its advantages. This refutes the first claim of reading passage.
- Paying more attention on lectures
In the second place, the reading passage states that student’s attention toward lectures can increase in this way. On the other hand, the listening passage reports that this relaxing can be dangerous. They cannot adapt school works easily. They may be bored in the school and their attention may reduce. They can even disturb other students in this period. This refutes the second claim of reading passage.
- Good for teachers
Last but not least, the reading passage contends that they can help teachers in multiple ways after traveling. On the other hand, the listening passage reports that teachers have a yearly lesson plan. They prepare it day by day and they know what to do intoday before the class.

It is not fair. This refutes the last claim of reading passage.
