    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?
    Books and TV are considered as two popular means to get information. Some people would argue that it is reading books that can boost out creativity and enhance language skills rather than watching TV. While I agree with this opinion, I also believe that watching TV has certain benefits.
    One the one hand, it is undeniable that books can develop more imagination, especially concerning comics or novels. Due to the fact that books purely contain words, it is impossible for readers to anticipate the endings without using their anticipation. For example, Harry Potter, a popular kind of science fiction books, facilitates readers’ imagination by allowing them to be involved in the magical world, where everything can happen. In terms of language skills, books are published, following some certain writing standards. Structures of different types of books must be guaranteed. Moreover, languages used in books are ideal with appropriate careful choices of words. Thanks to this, readers are able to build up their vocabulary for their language.
    On the other hand, we cannot deny the benefits of watching TV in these two aspects mentioned above. Although the language used in different programs usually focuses on daily spoken situations, there are a variety of teaching channels to help viewers get close to their target language by letting them get accustom to everyday conversations. Furthermore, it is highly likely that many films on TV are divided into various episodes ended in the most drilling parts. As a result, the audience are too eager to exploit their imagination to guess what will happen in the next episodes.
    To sum up, both books and TV have their own power. However, as for the aspects of language and imagination, it seems to me that books benefit over the TV.
