I usually contact my family and friends via Emails because I think with internet connection, emails has offered me quite a few advantages. For example, it’s really convenient for me to write to my friends, at any place and any time. Also, it’s ok if you write something wrong, because you may
always change and organize your language before sending the message. Meanwhile, compared with emails, telephone seems to be a little bit out of date. It might be kind of disturbing to call at an inappropriate time, say, if my parent is taking a shower or something. Also, if you contact people by telephone, you know, what is said is said. You can’t change it. So you have to be very careful not to be rude or anything. So that’s why I really prefer using emails.
Although nowadays, many people choose to contact other people via emails, I still prefer using telephone. Especially if I have something urgent, I will always choose to call, because if you write emails, the people on the other side might not check them very soon. Even if they check them, they might not respond in a timely manner. Also, I prefer to contact by phone because I like to hear my friends’ voices, especially if I haven’t been contacting them for quite some time, I will definitely call to make a little surprise. Finally, whenever I have some important personal things to talk through with my friends or my parents, I will make a phone call, because I don’t think I can expressmyself fully via emails, and calling makes much more effective exchange of ideas.
