Today, technology has developed so we can share a lot of pictures and information and keep in touch with many people who are away at once through social networking;for example, facebook and twitter. But they can inform unknown people of our privacy information. In the facebook, a lot of people go public their real names and the photographes of their faces. Besides in the twitter, they write where they are and what they are doing then.

Recently it has become impossible for people to live without technology,because thanks to this,we can feel more comfortable in our life.But technology also has bad aspects.Because of this we sometimes get caught in accidents. For example, I often hear the problem of bullying through using internet that one of the most famous technologies.On the internet,we can't specify the person who wrote the slander because, in many cases we don't have to introduce ourselves.We have to be careful with the words that use on the internet.

Most people use the Internet. We can always make contact with each other using facebook, twitter and so on. But sometimes we forget face to face communication because of addiction to networking and it's bad for our eyes if we look the screen for too long.

Nowadays lots of people are depending on technology to live comfortably and efficiently. In my opinion, technology has much more advantages than disadvantages. As you know, mobile phones, computers and etc are extremely convenient so that we can purchase anything online and talk with anybody on the phone. On the other hand, there are a few disadvantages such as privacy abuse and reduction of face to face communication. Spending too much time using technology also causes some problems. Iím certain that it must be time to reconsider our lifestyle with technology!!

The knowledge of technology is improving quickly. Many things were invented in the short time such as mobile phones, ipad, GPS, and so on. Itís more convenient, more useful, and easier than before. However, there are many difficulties. People get used to surfing on the Internet or sending the messages, even though they are in the class or at home. They couldnít concentrate on their studying and seldom go out to meet friends or family. In addition, people are getting to lose their privacy by filling in their personal information. In conclusion, hi-tech products change our lives strongly but we should use them properly and carefully.

Technology has been developing rapidly so it is necessary for us in our life. However, there are pros and cons. One of disadvantages is communication. Many people communicates by email and phone so they donít communicate by face to face. This is a big problem because you canít communicate with your colleague or boss when you work. As a result, you might quit your job. Now, many Japanese business men quit their job less than 1 year because of communication. However, there are many advantages. For example, you can communicate with your family and friends very easily. Now, many people have a smartphone which has convenient functions such as Skype and touch screen. In conclusion, Technology is very important for our life.

I think there are lots of not only advantages but also disadvantages of technology in todayís world. One of the advantages is that we can get any information - whatever we want - from websites instantly. Also, we donít need to use any transportation for going shopping. We can just relax and wait at home until the products are delivered from a courier. However, we should make sure if the website is trustworthy or not when you buy something, since there are many problem with internet shopping involved in payments. You might get a letter from the shop which you used, and which says Ďyou havenít paid the fee for your purchase yetí, though youíve already paid for your shopping. I would like to say that you should choose information carefully from the large amount of information available and use the technology effectively.

TOEIC Speaking and Writing Tests
Originally, the TOEIC test consisted only of the Listening and Reading Test. Then, in December 2006, an additional test - the TOEIC Speaking and Writing Test - was introduced in Japan and Korea. In January 2008, the same additional test was made available in the United States and Canada. In other parts of the world, the TOEIC test still refers to only the Listening and Reading Test.

TOEIC Speaking and Writing Tests

Good luck
