TOEFL Essay Topic 8 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television has destroyed communication among friends and family. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
t.v and communication
I do not believe that television has destroyed or even debilitated interpersonal communication among most people. Most people realize that television is just a temporary diversion and do not use it to replace interpersonal communication. I think that the damage attributed to television is really exaggerated and that such damage is most likely attributable to other factors.
It is difficult to ignore Television. Television is as much, a part of our lives as are our meals, work, or school; and also, because television is so rich in its media, it often requires more attention or is more attractive to us than are our daily lives. Conceding that communication among family and friends in modern countries has decreased in latest years, it might be attractive to blame this problem on television since it goes up generally coincided with the decrease in time we spend with our families. However, I think this situation is more likely due to increased pressures relating from work, school, and the economy. In some words, nowadays people have very little time to do something, but television is not the cause of destroying communication among friends and family.
In some situations, however, television has surely contributed to a decrease in communication among family members, However, even in this case, I would say that television merely contributed to the bad situation, but did not cause it; were television not existent, surely these people would have found other escapes, alcohol or gambling, for example. In other words, people always find a way to do what they want to do.
Another reason why I disagree with the above statement is that I believe that we can all friends and our family members to watch TV with us.I think watching good programs or playing a nice DVD can make good communication between us all.We can laugh and speak when we look TV,it is a good way to improve our communication. All in all, I really disagree that television has destroyed communication among family and friends. According to my two specific reasons, television not only improves the relationship between family members but also convey knowledge to people.
