TOEFL Essay Topic 126 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? There is nothing that young people can teach older people. Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.
Old people, of course, always have something to teach young people because they experienced more than the young. However,
Old people, of course, always have something to teach young people because they experienced more than the young. However, in my opinion, young people also have something that they can teach the older in some ways because of their diligence, their living condition and the fast changing world. People do not know more than others because they are older.
First, young people may know more because of their diligence. For example, the Nobel Prize winners are not always the oldest persons. They get the acceptance of the public because of their hard work. Their study results are learned by many people including those whose ages are older than the Noble Prize winners. In this sense, young people can teach the older ones.
Secondly, the living condition may be another reason that young people may have something to teach older people. For example, some young people have lived in a farm since they were born and did farm work everyday. Some other older people have never been to a farm. Therefore these young people can probably give the older people a class about the farm work.
lastly, in this society, technologies are developing so fast that young people probably learn some new knowledge that the older people have not learned. For example, the computer software is developing so fast that no one can learn all about it. Some young people may be good at those kinds of software that older people are not familiar with. So these young people may teach the software that they mastered to the older people.
General speaking, young people also have something that they can teach the older ones in many cases. The reason may be the diligence, the living circumstance of the young people and the fast changed society.
