Task：Some people think that technology makes life complex, so we should make
our life simpler without using the technology. To what extent do you agree or
Over the past century, science and technology has been developing
unprecedentedly and changing every aspect of people’s lives. In my point of
view, technology brings about higher efficiency and greater convenience,even
though it causes confusion and disorder under some circumstances.
The benefits of modern technologies are multiple. Automation is widely used
on the assembly line, setting free millions of people from the arduous and
repetitive work.Thanks to the widespread use of the Internet, people have easier
access to information than ever before. Instead of going to the library to
consult reference books,they can acquire any information they want via the
Internet. Moreover,emails and mobile phones enable people to stay in touch more
conveniently and efficiently, compared with the old days when they had to go to
the post office or visit others in person.
Despite the above-mentioned benefits,we cannot deny the fact that technology
may lead to complexity and inconvenience in some cases. For instance,some old
people find it difficult to use public facilities equipped with
electronic-devices. However, this issue can be addressed with clear instructions
provided. Another example is cyber fraud,which is difficult to prevent as the
false information can spread very fast on the web.Those who get deceived may
complain that the virtual space generates more crimes.
Overall,there is no denying that some problems and troubles may occur When
various new technologies are applied to people’s lives. However, returning to a
simple life without technology is not a solution and I believe a better future
of mankind lies with the further progress of science and technology.
