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.

People often say that young people are the future of the country. That is certainly true. Young people are always the leaders of the society. They always learn the newest in the world. They go to school every day and have more time to learn than any working person. Young peoples education is far better than the old peoples. They usually can learn much knowledge in a short period of time. Of course young know more logical things in this modern society. They have more new experience with foreigners.
Nowadays, China develops very quickly and changes a lot every year. We go to school, learn every day about the world and every day is different, everything is the newest, while old people work all through the day. They only have a little time to read or learn. They surely cannot know or learn more knowledge. So, young can teach the elders the things they learn in school.
From about 1980 a Chinese family has one child only. That makes parents love their child very much and they always want to give the best education to him or her. In this way the education now is far better than before. Young people now learn knowledge from every corner of the world, while the elders only know how to make a living and nothing more. For example we learn how to use computers, what is digital techniques. Elders cannot know any of these things. The wonderful education makes people more modern indeed, so young have another reason to teach the elders something.
China has opened for a long time and now more and more foreigners come to China. They start companies, teach their languages to Chinese people and so on. At the same time, foreigners also bring their countries traditions to China. Sometimes the foreign way to manage something is really better than the Chinese. When a young person learns foreign knowledge through foreign teachers, he can teach old and other people do not know, and later the society becomes a society full of foreign traditions. So, I also think that young people are the leaders of the society.
Therefore, do not always think that the old know everything and the young cannot teach them. The country is the youngs. The country needs the young people to build it more beautiful, better than others. We must believe we are far better the elders.
