7. Benefits of the Internet (cont)

Access to other cultures

The Internet enables you to look at sites about or written by people in other countries. You can look at photographs of where they live and read about their way of life.

This enables you to get a unique insight into their culture, something that just would not be possible without actually visiting them in person.



One of the main advantages of the Internet is how fast things can be updated. When a news story breaks, the BBC website can have that news on its pages within a couple of minutes. They can keep adding more information as it becomes available.

If that were a newspaper, you would have to wait up to a day to read about the news. Even news on the television takes longer to get to you than the Internet.
