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.
Young people can teach older people
In most cases, older people have experienced more than young people so older people may know something better and can perform better. Because of this, some people think people younger than themselves are immature so they can obtain nothing from them. However, I believe that I can learn many from people younger than myself. On the other hand, I can teach people older than I. I have several reasons to support my opinion.
First and foremost, although younger people have experienced less than older people, younger people might be more capable. I want to discuss an example in my rowing club. A student who is junior to me is very clever and has high leveled technique. He progressed faster than any other athlete and is now recognized as the best rower from everyone in our team. Although it is true that he is young and has not experienced well, he teaches us including oarsmen older than him and everyone is trying to absorb his advice to himself. Thus, capabilities are more important than ages or experiences.
Second, young people can teach older people because even younger people can notice and point out older people’s weak points. We can even say that ages are not important in teaching. Other people can view something from other perspective and give great advice. For instance, I got a useful admonish from another junior student about the rowing technique. He thinks about rowing technique totally different from I so listening to his advice was interesting.
In conclusion, young people can offer advice to older people because younger people are better at something and they consider something from different standpoints.
