TOEFL Essay Topic 87 - What discovery in the last 100 years has been most beneficial for people in your country? Use specific reasons and examples to support your choice.
I can come up with a lot of discoveries that bring our life benefit. If I chose one of them, I definitely chose the discovery of plane. In this 100 years, human being found the way to fly. This discovery brings excellent benefit to our life.
First and foremost, we became able to transfer faster. Using plane we are able to go to the other side of the earth within 24 hours. For example, in Japan, where I live in, air plane companies have develop various roots to approach everywhere in Japan. Without plane, it takes us 5 hours to go to a certain are from Tokyo by Shinkansen, the fastest train in Japan. On the other hand, if we use plane, we can reach the same place within 2 hours from Tokyo. Thanks to the plane, we can go away from Tokyo, have meetings, and come back to Tokyo in a day. This ability bring many benefit to our business life.
In addition, taking plane allows us to go to where we have never been to. To take another example, Japan is surrounded by the ocean. So we have huge difficulties to go abroad. Without plane, we never go to NY. For reaching NY, We have to take a ship and cross over the North America continent. It is impossible to do so. If we take a plane, all we have to do is to go to airport and just ride on a plane. As this example shows, we become able to go to various places and have excellent experiments that we never have without plane.
We have to admit that plane has negative impact on our life, such as carbon dioxide emission. Yet, plane bring so tremendous benefit to our life that we can’t help stopping to use plane. Moreover, manufactures are trying to invent new plane that implement low CO2 emissions.
In conclusion, I definitely choose plane as the most beneficial discovery in this 100 years.
