2. Pupil V. What invention from the last 150 years you consider to be the most important one?

Pupil 2: Well, it's not an easy question to answer, you know. I mean humanity has made such a great progress during this time. People invented cars, TV, aeroplanes, microchips, discovered the structure of DNAand so many things.

Pupil 1:1 know. And what is even more exciting is that each of the discoveries and inventions has led to many others. Like the invention of computers has led to the invention of global network and the World Wide Web. But I suppose that the invention of the telephone was the crucial point in the progress of civilization. By the way, who invented the telephone? Pupil 2: You know, credit for the invention of the electric telephone is frequently disputed, and new controversies over the issue have arisen from time-to-time. There were several inventors who did pioneering experimental work on voice transmission over a wire and improved on each other's ideas. But the first inventor who was awarded with a patent for the electric telephone was Alexander Graham Bell. Pupil 1:1 see. Well, he has provided us with one of the most common household appliances of the modern world. His invention has completely changed our lives because now we can reach anybody in almost any place on the Earth by telephone. People have no need to write letters or telegrams, especially when they have some urgent news to tell. We can easily ring anybody and hear their voices and talk as if we were in the same room. Pupil 2:: You are absolutely right. And moreover, the invention of the telephone has meant that it was just the beginning of people's familiarization with electrical signals. After that so many other inventions appeared. Electric telephone has been modernized to a mobile phone and satellite systems have been successfully studied and applied.

Pupil 1: That's true. So, it seems like we both think the same.

Pupil 2: Absolutely.
