Speaking 1 Topic: Choose career before university or after a few classes?

Some students think it is good to choose one's future career before entering university. Others think it is wiser to take a few university classes before choosing one's future career. Which one do you prefer?

In the 15 seconds I have for note-taking, here’s what I would jot down:

  1. Take classes before deciding
  2. Reason 1: Trial and error
  3. Reason 2: Flexible
  4. Example of friend

Here’s my detailed response:

I would certainly prefer to take a few classes before deciding on what I would like for a career. First, I believe that it’s better to expose oneself to various options before taking a life-altering decision. Also, I believe that a certain amount of flexibility is important to achieve anything in life. Change is the only constant, and I would like to keep an open mind wherever possible. A friend of mine had almost made up his mind that he would become a historian, because he simply loved history classes in school. However, he decided to sit through a few classes of English Literature as well. He fell in love with the subject and decided to choose a career teaching English.
