[题目]Some people think that machine translation is highly developedintoday’s society. Therefore it is not necessary for childrentolearn a foreign language. What’s your opinion?
With the rapid development of modern science, computers havebeenplaying a more important role in our daily lives. It is suchaworldwide trend that there is no exception for Chinese.
Many people regard the computer as the magic machine. It cansolvemany problems quickly and efficiently, and best of all, itcantranslate all kinds of languages. By using the computer you canjustput ail the original versions into it and then you will getthe fasttranslation. So some parents raise doubts about thenecessity fortheir children to learn foreign languages so hard anymore.
At first thought, it seems that the computers can really helpusto do so. But if you look in- sue the matter deeply, you may findadifferent answer. First of all, machines can never replacemankind.Computers are created by man and are controlled by humanbrains. Wecan never rely too much on machines; otherwise we willbecome theslave of them one day. On the contrary, we need to enrichourknowledge as much as possible so that we can catch up with thefastpace of the world. It is very necessary to learn more languagessoas to upgrade our abilities to follow the progress oftheworld.
And furthermore, it will do good to children if they learnmorelanguages. Both their brain and their thinking modules canbenefitfrom it. When they grow up, they can easily accept variouskinds ofcultures and communicate with foreigners, which canfavorablyenhance the mutual understanding and developinternationalbrotherhood.
So, we can clearly see that, though computers can begoodtranslators, people still need to learn more languages with aviewto improving their abilities and facilitating theirfuturecommunication with people from othercultures.
