Some people believe that the increasing use of the computers and the mobile phones has a negative effect on young people’s reading and writing skill，do you agree or disagree?
The past century has witnessed tremendous changes in high-tech products and these changes altered our reading choices. Currently, the growing number of young people have been attracting by many popular entertainment such as the cell phone or the computer, therefore, an opinion spring up that reading and writing competence among youngsters in many nations is at risk now. As I see it, the popularity of high-tech products does not necessarily have a adverse influence on people’s reading and writing abilities.

Although our entertainment culture has been shifting, people still read and think, they just have different preferences. Thanks to the contrivance of the Internet of the mobile phone, our reading choice has been greatly diversified and enriched. Indeed, people used to rely on print media for cultural growth and spiritual enjoyment, yet, youngsters can sill expose to a rich array of excellent literature works via the Internet, the mobile phone, radio or television. E-reading could also stir one’s imagination, stimulate one’s creativity, sharpen one’s aesthetic responses.

Traditionally, only famous writers can publish their books, however, many youngsters now could wholeheartedly run their own blogs or micro blogs. The writers’ zeal can be highly stimulated if their stories or thoughts can arouse readers’ sympathy. In this sense, on-line creation actually nurture many youngsters’ writing talents.

As the passive receivers of the information, numerous young people are too lazy to have a in-depth thought under the subtle influence of the computer or the cell phone, then, some youngsters may be slow in developing their reading ability and writing techniques.
