Topic of the Day: Great Inventions

Where would we be without the simple light bulb, or without the electricity that powers it? Great minds of the past have made the world as we know it today. Even now, new inventions are being brought to life everyday. I have to give my thanks to Alexander Graham Bell for my favorite invention, the telephone. I'm not sure what I would do if I couldn't put my life into one little portable device. Buy a clock, an agenda, a pad of paper, and a map, I guess.

What is your favorite invention and why? Or, are you cooking up your own invention? Feel free to share your thoughts! If you would like to discuss today's topic one-on-one, feel free to book a trial class at www.italki.com/teacher/3239587. I look forward to meeting you!

As I woke up today, I thought "wouldn't it be nice to have an at-home-robot maid that could do my less than desirable chores"... oh, if only. Any of you have an invention in mind that you would love to see in the near future?

There is no doubt that internet would be the best invention ever since and I love it so much. Can you imagine how fancy it is that a person can easily connect to the world and communicate with many people who were not reachable few decades ago?

BTW, Katy, as far as phone goes, “Hello” wasn’t a common greeting until the invention of the telephone. Thomas Edison convinced the printers of the first phone books to make it the sanctioned greeting.

Graham Bell, yes! Altough i heard that the first prototype of the telephone was designed by an italian whose name don't know. In any case, Tesla is maybe the definition of "genius"
