With the increasing use of mobile phones and computers, fewer people write letters. Some people think that the traditional skill of letter writing will disappear. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Many people are worried that the traditional skill of letter writing will disappear from our lives because of the popularity of the Internet and mobile phones. However, I do not think that the skill of letter writing will be lost completely.
I accept that most people’s letter-writing skill will become weaker because they have few chances to practise this skill. People today tend to interact with others with mobile phones, the Internet or other electronic tools for the convenience and high efficiency that they can offer. Also, many people, especially young people, feel that electronic means of communication such as instant messaging and video chat can bring them more pleasure than letters. （考生注意模仿如何层层递进）
However, I would argue that people will still need to write letters on some occasions because letters help them to express their emotions better than e-mail man SMS. （与上一段形成对比，反面论证） For example（举例论证）, few students write thank-you letters by hand and mail the letters to their teachers, their teachers are likely to feel more appreciated when reading the letters. Similarly, on Valentine’s Day, many young people prefer to express their love and affection for their boyfriend or girlfriend with handwritten letters, which helps them to express their feelings more passionately and sincerely.
Like personal letters, formal letters will also continue to play active roles in our lives. For example, when a customer feels dissatisfied with the product or service provided by a business, the customer can write a formal letter of complaint and send it to the business. This shows that the customer takes the matter seriously, and makes the complaint more likely to be resolved by the business than an e-mail complaint does.
In conclusion, I believe that the tradition of letter writing will not be lost completely because it can still help us on various personal and business occasions when electronic means of communication do not seem sincere or formal enough.
