In today’s world, to speak well is more important than to write well. Agree or disagree.
Speaking and writing are two different skills that students had to learn when they were a little child. They learnt them from their parents, from their teachers, and from others. It is hard to judge what skill is better than the other, but as far as I am concerned, in general, speaking skill more outweighs writing skill, since we use speaking in most of our activities, speaking helps us maintain and strengthen our relationships, and brings us memorable and relaxing time.
First, it is undeniable that speaking is used in most of our activities such as working, playing, and socializing. Writing also is used very much, but when comparing the frequent uses and the effectiveness of the two important skills, speaking is more dominant than writing. For example, when I am working at my office, communicating well with my colleagues and my bosses is very important. I use this skill everyday and every time to fulfill my tasks, since my job is related to social relationship. I also use writing in my works, but it is very rare and not effective one.
Second, thanks to communicating well with others, I can maintain and strengthen my relationships. Communicating skill is very crucial skill that can bring us together. We can understand each other very much after an intimate and sincere conversation, but if we use writing as the main way to communicate, such as writing a letter, we are wasting a lot of time to know each other. Moreover, body language and eye contact used in conversations are proved much more effective than writing. Hence, it is no doubt that communicating is better than writing in terms of maintaining and strengthening our relationships.
Last but not least, by using speaking when communicating with others, I can gain a great deal of experience in memorable and relaxing time. Honestly, I am very fond of gossiping with my friends, and it helps me relieve my stress significantly. In this conversation, I often laugh very much, and I also understand my friends’ ideas more easily than when I send him a message. It is also a quicker way to gain knowledge from others, and a good way to avoid misunderstanding, for we can communicate face-to-face and look at his or her gestures.
In summary, although writing is very crucial role in some circumstances, I think speaking well with others is much more important. By communicating well with others, we can increase my working efficiencies, maintain our relationships, and have more relaxing time.
