Essay question

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: Although science and technology will continue to improve, the most significant improvement for the quality of people's lives has already taken place. 重复2011.3.11NA

【话题提示】

 

Sample answer

Science discovers new ways to save lives, enjoy life, and help create life, while technology supplies science with the tools needed to do so. The development of science and technology in the past century has dramatically changed way people live. Although it is difficult to predict exactly how they will impact our world in the future, one thing I’m quite sure about is that they will continue to improve people’s quality of lives in much more significant ways than in the past.

New breakthroughs in medical science will allow humans to finally eradicate diseases that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives every year in the past decades. Although health and sanitary conditions of humans have improved considerably thanks to modern medical technologies such as immunization vaccines and organ transplant, a few diseases are still considered fatal at the present, including AIDS and cancer.  However, research into genetics and stem cells have already made huge progress and will enable us to prevent the contraction of such diseases and successfully cure them if they occur.

Telecommunication is the second area where improvement of people’s life is most likely to be seen. When Alexander Bell first invented the telephone, he would never have imagined that millions of teenagers would have their own multifunctional mobile phones two centuries later. Today, when we are already enjoying fast and instant communication and information processing are still offering new possibilities for improving the speed and quality, as well as reducing the cost of such communications. One newspaper report I just read said that mobile phone networks in China will be able to provide internet speeds up to 16 times faster than current technologies after the introduction of 4G network, and that’s only about one or two years from now.

The above are two examples of how developments in science and technology will continue to bring significant improvements to people’s lives. Indeed, there are countless other areas where the brightest ideas and innovations in science and technology are revolutionizing the way people live by making it healthier, better and more enjoyable.
