That is to say, Internet allows the world to be in contact with the latest current news. Another adventatge is that virtual communication has been enhanced.

True, the internet people are fooled, but there are ways to make security, as when you go to buy something on Ebay, You have to see that the person selling the product, you must have a high rating, this rating is the qualifying by the buyers to the seller, also the time to give your credit card number, do not give it to anyone, just give your card number to websites that are known and that you have a really notion that is reliable, and when receive emails from people or websites telling you you've won a prize and leave your data, please, never pay any attention to this email nonsense.

Well, Internet, to me, is one of the best inventions, us made life more easy, well that's what motivated me to know that studying in the future, and for the career I want, I need know speak in English.
