Essay

 I don’t think the Internet harms interpersonal communication. On the contrary, I think it facilitates interpersonal communication. (@)
 Some people are against using e-mail (cell phone) but I am for using e-mail (cell phone) for the following two reasons. (A)
 Firstly, it allows users to communicate with each other more quickly and cheaply. It used to take us a long time to send letters and wait for replies. It used to cost us a lot of money to call people overseas. However we can communicate with people much more quickly and cheaply thanks to the Internet (e-mail or cell-phone) now. Therefore the Internet (e-mail or cell-phone) surely makes communication more quickly and cheaply.
 Secondly, it allows users to communicate with each other any time anywhere in the world. It used to be very difficult to communicate with people far away. However we can contact with people in the other side of the earth now. Furthermore, now that the web camera (video mail or video phone) has been spreading, we can communicate with people face-to face thanks to the Internet (e-mail or cell-phone).
 As I mentioned above, I do not think the Internet harms interpersonal communication. On the contrary, I think it facilitates interpersonal communication. (@)
 As I mentioned above, for the aforesaid two reasons, I am for using e-mail (cell phone). (A)

メモ

トピックは
インターネットは人と人とのコミュニケーションを阻害するか?
Eメールの使用の賛否両論
です。
またこれも、内容が同じなので一つにまとめました。
ただ、前回と同じように序論と結論の部分だけ変えてあります。
また、括弧内にもあるように”携帯電話の使用についての賛否両論”というトピックでもこれと同じ内容でスピーチができます。
さらに、前回のトピックではインターネットの長所を述べましたが、その反論として今日のトピックのような、インターネットは人のコミュニケーションの悪影響ではないか?という質問が考えられますが、このエッセイの内容でその質問に答えることができます。
