38 Learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. Do you agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Some people claim that Learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. However, as far as I am concerned, learning of past means a lot to us that living in the present. Learning of past can help us avoid mistake, accumulate knowledge, and build a successful career. Those who ignore the value of learning of past do not see the connection between the past and the present.

In the first place, Learning about the past plays a very important role in our daily life. Remember, do we have these experience such as could not find the key, missed something after shopping, expressed in a improper way that make others unhappy, etc. These things definitely all happened in our life and bothered us. But the way we treat those stuff is of amazing importance. If we learn these mistakes as lessons and take them seriously, the result might be surprisingly different. For example, those

captured the value of the lesson can find ways to prevent those from happening again in the future. They keep their keys in fixed place, they write down things they need before going to the

supermarket, and analyze why their words make others feel hurt, how to express in a better way. By doing so, Learning of the past can turn out to be an invaluable treasure in later life. Many details can determine success or failure.

What ’s more, in the academic field, the importance of leaning about past can never be exaggerated. For thousands of years, people accumulated knowledge little by little, and finally we have a comprehensive system of knowledge of science, technology, literature, sociology, etc. Every

breakthrough in technology and every step of development of society are built on the cornerstone of the past. Without sufficient emphasis on the past, we can hardly find the way to improve ourselves and our society.

Last but not the least, learning about the past can lead us to understand “who we are ?” and “where we are from?”. We should be grateful to the past, to our ancestors that worked so hard and left us with the foundation for today ’s prosperity. We need to know that people lived a arduous life in the past, suffered with starvation, insufficient healthcare, wars and so on. So in this point we should cherish what we have now, saving food, protect our environment and be happy.

Above all, we can safely come to a conclusion that Learning about the past is crucial to those of us living in the present
