Have telephone and e-mail made communication between people less personal?
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Telephones and email have made communication between people less personal. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
这个话题属于对现代科技的探讨，无论是支持还是反对考生的论述重点都需要放在是否让交流变得less personal。这道题目反对会比较好写，因为一般都会说电话邮件拉近了人与人之间的距离，想要找到相关的例子也比较简单，而且更方便的交流并不能说是less personal的。所以这两者之间并不存在必然的因果关系。
Some people argue that telephones and e-mail have made communication between people less personal. I both agree and disagree with this statement. Truly, Telephones and email are less personal than meeting someone face-to-face. However, They on any account can't impair the intimacy between people. As mentioned above, using the telephone or email to communicate with others is definitely less personal than speaking with someone in person. There are many advantages of communicating with someone face to face. For example, you can read their body language. Body language, which includes facial expressions, is a key indicator of how a person is reacting to the conversation. If we are not present to be able to see these clues, there is much more room for misinterpretation. This can cause annoying misunderstandings between people, especially when having a serious discussion about an important matter. This, however, does not mean that communication is less personal between people because of these technologies. I believe that when people need to have a serious conversation, they will use the telephone or email to set up a meeting time to discuss a topic in person. For the most part, individuals will not have an important conversation utilizing one of these methods. When viewed from this perspective, it becomes clear that the telephone and email actually enhance our ability to communicate effectively with others. Because of these technologies, we can easily access others when necessary. In conclusion, I think that if a person is going to solely use the telephone or email as his primary method of communication, his communication with others will definitely be less personal. However, if the person uses these technologies to contact others, but saves important conversations for face-to-face meetings, there is no loss of connection.
