The Net and I (letter)
, July 21, 2007
I enjoy surfing the Net, and have been doing so since I was 10 years of age. I like surfing the Net because you can interact with other people. For example, you can talk to your schoolmates. Also, you can get a lot of information from it, such as from Google or Wikipedia.
Surfing the Net helps with my schoolwork. When I am writing an essay, I use it to get information about the topic I am writing about. For example, I did an essay on the unicellular organism, paramecium. I used the Net to get information, such as where it lives, what its features are and what its diet is.
The Net also is a lot of fun; you can play games on the net. I play car-racing games and sport games.
My favourite website is MySpace
. I like MySpace
because you can talk to your friends and make new friends.
I log onto MySpace
about five times a week. Most of my friends have MySpace
For kids today, going online is a way to stay in touch daily. It is a very important means of communication. It is a modern convenience like the television or the telephone. Being a kid today and not being able to go online mean you are socially disadvantaged.Stephen Babb, Year 7,
