With the world developping rapidly, we have enterred the information age, more and more media instruments are being introduced to us, and we become relying on them much more than before. Television is a good example. It is not surprise that most of families have bought television to their homes, it is also not surprise that many people like watching televeision every day and they are interested in the television programs. The number of people who like watching television is expanding to every age: children, youngers, the wrinkly and the old.
As for adults, watching television seems to a common thing in the life that people nearly talk about this, however, people are more and more concerning about the problem that there are so many students addicting to television that they have no heart for their studies, so voices about that television is bad for students aroused, they say television embarrasses the students’ study and it is harmful to their mental and physical health. It seems that television is of no good for students, but in my opinion, television is good for students.
I know that the most important use of television is to entertain ourselves, whereas, television is a good teacher at the same time. Watching television helps the students gain knowledge by a diffrent way. If you watch a news program, you can receive the lattest news around the world, you can get the news in which you are interested most and expand your view to the world development, also what you have watched can become a part of your knowledge that is prepared for communicating with others.
If you wacth a science program, you can get known about the science development, what reserch we have finished and what we are still reserching for, watching science program help arouse the students’ interests in studying, they will work hard and wish to know more as long as they have motivation in their studies.
If you watch a ecucation program, what you can gain from it is not only science but also language or something else helpful for your life, maybe you can be excited by watching an English speech compitition, by contrasting you and the competitor, you will know what you are lack in and in which aspect you should work hard so as not to fall behind from others. There are many educating programs that it is intersting and exciting to students, by atching them, the students can expand their knowledge and improve the efficiency of their brains’ working, the brain will be helped develop faster. Some people say that the advertisements are uesless to students, but they don’t know the advertisement has its own strong point. When the students watching those advertisements, their sense organisations are being well trained, also does it help them know more about the world outside. So it is not harmful for the students to watch television in a normal priod of time.
Television entertainment is not only needed by adults, it is also needed by the students. As well know , there is always a lot of pressure being put on the students. They have to work hard and get a good result after studying, they have to face the fierce compitition between each other in the society, they will be nervous before a big examinatin, some can not even fall asleep for that. So the students need relaxing, too. BY watching funny programs, they will be relaxing and earn more encourage to face their pressure and difficulties.
In another side, don’t think we get nothing from movies, if that is true, our foreign teachers are teaching us in a wrong way. Some people say that young students like watching movies which contain violence and eroticism, it is great harmful to theri mental health. But that’s only a small amount of such kind, most movies are fit to the students. Movie reflects the life, it can show different culture of different country, that’s why we English learner often see English movies, that is the same with other language learners.
Besides that, it is not only movie is good for students but also the other entertaining programs. By watching an entertainment program, we have fun and know more about different people. If you watch it with your families, it is happy that you have fun together, that shorten the distance between you and your parents, it is undoubtly good that children grow up in a harmony family circumastance. In conclusion, I think that television is good for students. What we should do is to guid the students to use television properly.
Parents should control the time well for their children to watch television programs, also should them supervision what kind of program they are watching, and help them build the right view of the outside world so that they will do their work in a correct way. What’s more, it is the duty of government to prevent the bad programs from appearing on television. I believe that if the whole society cooperate well, watching television is an absolutely good thing for the students.
