Internet is one of the most important inventions in history. It is a network of millions of computers around the world, connected by phone lines, satellites or cables. Millions of people from all over the world use it every day. Internet has made the world a real global village which permits us to travel, pay bills or do the shopping without going out from our houses. We can read newspapers, play games or even plan our holidays. A huge merit of Internet is a possibility to download music and films in no time. We can also communicate with other people from all over the world by means of programs like IRC, ICQ or GG. We can join a newsgroup and share our special interests with each other. A very useful thing is an electronic mail, because it is faster than regular post and even air mail. Internet offers a lot of information from every branch of knowledge. So we can find everything for our schoolwork or job there, or just find more about our hobbies. There are some demerits of internet also. Some web sites are not suitable for children, for example sites about violence, sex or sects. In conclusion, Internet has more good sides than bad ones, and I think that it’s improving all the time, so in the future it will be still better.
