Is Calling Better than Writing? Sample 1 In this era of “phone”-net, the telephone becomes so popular that it is indispensable in our daily life. Compared with writing letters, making telepho
ne calls is much faster, so they are more appropriate and efficient when we need an immediate reply or in case of emergency. They also enable us to hear voices, which gives us a more natural and “interactive” feeling. It is so easy just to pick up the phone and call, whereas writing is more time-consuming and energy-consuming. However, as a conventional （传统的， 常规的） means of communication, writing letters is still widely used in such formal cases as recommendation, business, and the like. The words in the letters are written after thinking, while calls are not, because sometimes our tongues may go ahead of our brains unconsciously. When we write letters, we have enough time to think about how to express our ideas, so we try to avoid saying something that we may regret, or we avoid making a comment that is misunderstood or that hurts others. For some cases, such as love letters, writing is more romantic. Rereading letters from friends is like rediscovering hidden treasures. Many letters are inspiring sources of excitement and reflection. Words on a page seem more expressive. And sometimes we feel more confident writing our feelings than conveying them over the phone. Therefore, it is very difficult to say which is better. Every means of communication has its advantages and disadvantages. The only thing we can do is make a w ise choice between calling and writing in accordance with the situation and the practical need.
