Writing Task 2 (essay)

There are many new technologies for communication. Do you think they are helping people to stay in touch or not? Provide relevant examples and state your opinion.


Many of my friends have a good romantic relationship with their lovers, after many conversation by QQ; I, focusing on job, have no choice, but to give many calls to my parents who are living in village; it’s common that I, every week, will discuss many problems with my friends, who are learning course in Italy; and my leader, always assign the jobs through Email, and provide better suggestions to me. The improvement of technology has changed the types of relationship sharply. And this essay will examine many details about whether it has positive or negative effects.

People will spend less time to establish and maintain the relationship with others. For instance, my brothers, when he misses his girlfriend, just give a call to her---it will spend only couple of minutes. In the past, the letter I write to my parents will cost at least 5 days to arrive at the hands of theirs, but right now, I just give a call. The conversation between me and my friends in Italy happen almost everyday night. And my leader just writes a email which will spend about five minuets to me. All of these provide evidence that the technology has changed us dramatically.

These development, surely, offer much help to us. For instance, in the high school, I could only go to the public telephone to give call to my parents at most twice. And right now, with the help of MSN, it is common that almost every night, we have a conversation about my life and job.

But, the concerns need our special attention. For instance, my nephew always indulges in computer games, which will cost his at least 40 hours a week. It means that he have no enough time to have discussion with me and his parents.

In conclusion, it’s no secret that many technologies have bring numerous benefits to us, while we have to be bracing the concerns of it.
