TOPIC:
Email and text messaging have transformed communication, but they are seriously threatening the status of written language.
How far do u agree or disagree with this statement?

It is true that our way of life has been alternated as the new technologies are keeping to introduce to us. Email and text messaging, for instance, have been widespread, as a result, the traditional written language is declined seriously. I will demonstrate my opinion as following reasons:

Firstly, the convenience of Email and text messaging bring to people is enormous, the service of written language is able to provide to us is too poor in comparison. the design of those technologies is to simplify the process of communication between people. it has the function of sending message in group of people. with this function, you can deliver many copies of message to large amount of people just with a simple click which is hardly imaged to spend monthly time to write novel by using written language. Considered on this point, the trend of written language being replaced by email and text messaging is undoubted.

Secondly, the writing form of email and text messaging lets written language suffer. it is possibly because the majority of users of email and text messaging is from the young generation. those prefer to use slang and abbreviation to contact with small group of people. if a outsider try to come along, it is difficult for them to make assumption of the meanings of those words. from time to time. the formal way of written language could be highly possible to be reformed. the younger generation might learn totally different academic writing skill.

In summary, as email and test messaging spread their powerful influence, it is unavoidable that the position of written language is in danger. Even though i personally support the conventional written language, the proper solution left to us is to educate young people the form of written language, to tell them the benefit of it to bring and encourage them to use it as much as possible.

THX everybody.

Using the topic as the name of the thread is better than names like "here is my essay of ielts exam. PLS have a look, maybe leave comment below"

I think you should remember to write the first letter in capital after a fullstop and use linkers, like Geenesh has said.
For example:

Firstly, the convenience of Email and text messaging bring to people is enormous, the service of written language is able to provide to us is too poor in comparison.

If you use contrasting linkers such as "however", "while"...in this sentence, it will become better
