Some people believe that people who read books can develop more imagination and language skills than those who prefer to watch TV. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

There is a belief that reading books could enhance peoples’
imagination
and
language
ability while watching
TV
has less effect on
this
. In my view, reading books is certainly a better way to improve either
imagination
and
language
skills rather than watching
TV
only. It is true that people could build their
language
skills and a wide range of vocabulary by reading books.
Firstly
, books usually contain a large amount of words used in many aspects in
life
Accept comma addition
life, such
such
as clothes, exercise, eating, medicine and even technical words which could be easily to gain.
Secondly
, by reading books, we could learn how
to make
Suggestion
making
a full sentence and use words properly and flexibly. When people have these skills they tend to be extremely confident to communicate.
Besides
that, books could probably boost our
imagination
. When we are reading a book without any pictures, we would feel free to imagine what happens in the story in our mind.
For instance
, when reading “A little mermaid”, we could creatively imagine how life under the water is, how beautiful the mermaids are and how funny all the sea creatures is. Compared to watching
TV
, we tend to absorb what is presented on
TV
passively without reflecting it. By way of conclusion, people should maintain the habit of reading because in
this
high-tech world, we are easily distracted
from
Suggestion
by
many things designed or written improperly which may resist our
imagination
and
language
ability.
