I tried to answer the question;
Agree or disagree: Modern technology can improve our ability to communicate
What distinguishes humans from other animals? Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by this question. Currently, my answer is technology: people have the ability to devise and develop tools in a sophisticated manner. The next question is whether modern technology can improve our ability to communicate or not. My answer is definitely no.

For one thing, the overuse of technology does more harm than good. Before the advent of writing, people had to memorize everything, from stories and poems to the history of a given tribe. Storytellers had to have a remarkable memory. The audience enjoyed listening to heroic epics without the use of technology. However, our ability to remember and tell stories is now declining.

What's more, most people are now drowning in a flood of information. Even worse, smartphones enable you to use the Internet anytime and anywhere. Since it has become something of a necessity, it is almost impossible to be disconnected. You are bombarded by messages and have to reply to them all the time. The quality of communication is deteriorating rapidly.

In summary, I do not believe modern technology can improve our communication skills. You need to disconnect sometimes in order to fulfill your potential.


I tried to answer the question;
Agree or disagree: The natural environment in Japan is being seriously damaged
I was born and raised in Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island. It is famous for its beautiful nature. When I was a kid, I often went to the sea because I loved fishing. I have come to feel a strong connection to nature. However, now I realized that the natural environment in Japan is being seriously damaged and compromised.

For one thing, many plants and animals are on the verge of extinction due to the destruction of their habitats. The construction industry has a powerful influence on the Japanese government. You can see wasteful public works projects, such as the landfill of wetlands, everywhere. As a result, the paradise of wildlife is quickly disappearing all over Japan.

In addition, climate change is casting a dark shadow over the natural environment. Originally, Japan was also known as "Mizuho no Kuni," which means, "the land of rice." Japanese people have been growing rice for thousands of years. It grows best in this country, and became the staple food. If the temperature goes up by several degrees, it might be impossible to grow rice here.

In conclusion, the ecosystems of Japan are becoming increasingly vulnerable. We have to do something to prevent further destruction of the natural environment as soon as possible.
