Letter or Card
1. What kind of methods do you prefer to communicate with your friends?
I prefer to phone my friends because it is the most convenient. Sometimes I send short messages with the mobile phone.
2. Do you think people like writing letters to communicate?
No,I think there are fewer people who like writing letters. Compared with E-mails and telephones,writing letters is slow and trouble-some?
3. What are the benefits of writing letters?
I think traditional letters express personal emotions. There is an old Chinese saying that "Seeing one's handwriting is like seeing the person himself". The feeling of reading letters written by your friends is more agreeable than reading E-mails.
4. How often do you use E-mails?
E-mails are the main method in which I communicate with my friends.I check my E-mails every day. I am keen on traveling,so I have a lot of E-mails from the friends I made on trips. We send E-mails frequently to chat about work and life.
5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of E-mails?
The biggest advantage of E-mailing is its convenience. You needn't buy envelopes or stamps and go to the post office. You just type the letter and then click the mouse to send it. Another advantage is that the mail reaches the other person in several seconds. Thanks to Internet,it makes the distant places several seconds away. However, like many other hitech products,I think E-mails are cold and passionless. They just pass the messages but don't have the emotions. Besides,they are unsafe if attacked by hackers and may be affected by vi-ruses?
