Introduction: (Introduce the topic and MENTION reasons supporting both opinions. EXPLAIN these reasons in the body paragraphs.)
In a globalized world, we cannot survive without learning about other countries, and about international political and economic developments. Watching the television and surfing the Internet help us learn about global developments from experienced reporters and field experts. However, travel is a better way to learn since it offers a first-hand experience and helps in networking.
Body Paragraph 1: (Reasons supporting television and the Internet)
Global news networks such as the B.B.C and Al Jazeera along with newspapers and magazines such as the Economist and the New York Times have a team of professional journalists who offer deeply researched insights on different countries. Reading detailed reports from these networks on the Internet gives an individual an idea of events, ranging from business to politics, in various countries. Moreover, these sources broadcast any new information or news as soon as it is generated. Hence, it keeps us informed with the latest content.
Body Paragraph 2: (Reasons supporting travel)
However, the Internet and television fail to provide the first-hand experience that helps in a person’s learning and growth. Travel, on the other hand, enables an individual to absorb various global events using all sensory perceptions. A person not only sees the prevailing conditions with his own eyes but also listens to the first-hand accounts of the people. Thus, travel helps build a personal as well as professional network that television and the Internet cannot. Furthermore, without traveling in a country, a person cannot understand the local culture and traditions which are vital in the modern business environment, For instance, famous international investors such as Jim Rogers prefer visiting various countries such as India, China, and Russia before making investment decisions.
Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with elements of FUTURE and IMPACT)
In conclusion, while travel offers a better learning experience, it is painfully slow. On the other hand, television and the Internet offer immediate information without the benefit of depth of learning. To learn about other countries, a person should prefer an optimum mixture of both channels.
