Modern technology has revolutionized the way people spend their leisure time, from reading engrossedly to watching TV casually. In terms of this transformation, there has been a growing body of opinion in favour of the view that compared with watching TV, reading books is a preferred way to better cultivate imagination and grasp language skills.To my mind, both serve a positive function with proper time allocated in TV viewing and well-chosen materials read.
With regards to reading, it does have much a role to play in eliciting imaginative response and enhancing language skills as it leaves room for imagination and in-depth study. Unlike vividly visual display in the TV programs, there are only words playing as triggers in written text, meaning that people must re-imagine sights, sounds, tastes, feelings, etc of the narrative, thus, definitely, improving people's creativity. Apart from that, by doing massive reading, people get used to seeing proper grammar, formal languages and new correction,therefore, being exposed to a larger brain feed of vocabulary and grammar simply trains people to use language better. Perhaps the clearest example of this would be that heavy readers tend to speak more articulately than average people who are keen on watching TV.
Conversely, there is a commonly heard view that television is of great importance to stimulate imaginative play and advance language skills. As to building imagination, this highly visual medium is a boon given to people by technology that is a good source to entertain them only when used judiciously. Watching good channels like “discovery” on television increases people’s imagination power along with general knowledge. On an educational side, Television, it is argued, makes the boring exciting through its ability to engage people with both sound and visual stimulation. People respond well to the visual story-telling power of fast-paced television programmes and are better able to retain the language learned through this experience. The use of television programmes to teach children how to read and write is a good example of this.
To conclude then, books and televisions are both very imaginative and educational by helping people foster imagination and have a good command of language skills.
