Whether can young people teach older people ? There are many differences in this issue. I think the most important reason that about a person can teach the others is depend on his or her knowledge,capability and experiments. So I disagree that is nothing that young people can teach older people. In this essay I will summarize the reasons to support my perspectives.
Many people ragard that the older people will have more knowledge than young people. Because they have longer time to learn knowledge, and meet more things in their life. The older people can gain more life experiments than young people.Especally in some ancient cultures, all of the knowledge and history were transformed from older people to younger.Young people have to respect older people and record what they said,it is impossible for the older to learn anything from younger people.
But in modern time, people can gain knowledge and former experiments from the books, internet and many other resourses.Therefore, the younger people are likely to have more knowledge than older people. It is possible for many young people to know something that older people have never learned.A lot knowledges are formed from special trainings or education, not only depended on age.Many older people still go to night school to learn from the teacher who are younger than them.It is a good example.
To conclude, I disagree that there is nothing that young people can teach older people.The teaching and learning are not decided the students and teachers` age;the knowledge and the requirement are the siginificant reasons.
