  1. Undoubtly, The Internet is the greatest invention which has really changed the world. After the Internet, the world has become smaller and smaller. People from every corner of the world now have the chance to interact and exchange all sorts of things over the web as if they were living near one another. The Internet has also taught us that although we live in different countries and have different sociocultural backgrounds, we're all the same ( and also think the same) because we're just one race: human beings.

  2. For me, it's cellphone. This tool has greatly intervened in people's lives in so many ways;doing works, chatting with friends and etc. Although there are some side effects from the gadget, it has more positively influenced people's daily livings. Even for me I can't live without cellphone since there are tons of works to do by cellphone; contacting buyers and so on.

  4. For me, computers and the internet go hand in hand. I'm an english teacher in Caracas, Venezuela and besides, recently started working at Open English . From that moment, I began using the computer and the internet with my particular students and it changed my life. Now I enjoy english teaching more than ever!

  5. I think the internet and computer have changed the world the most, because we can do a lot of things such as e-mails, chatting, calling, wacthing animations(or movies) and we can know what is happening now by using them. Also, students can do their assignments using Microsoft Office Word, Excel and Power Point.

  6. I think the greatest invention is the Internet because we can get and offer any kinds of information anytime and anywhere. It also makes us fun for our entertainment.

    in my opinion the greatest invention that change the world the most is the invention of airplane because airplane is the best source to travel around the world so fast and its so big to fill more people. and other benefit of inventing airplane is you can travel far far places.

  8. for me it's the computer as well. as Bruno cleary "praised" the computer, i think people can easily share and receive information from all the world. they can learn a lot while staying at home. ( it's less expansive that traveling but the drawback is not to hear the person behind the computer. i mean even if we got a webcam or skype,it's not the person in real)
    don't know if i'm clear, my apologies in advance!
