This is extremely important in a society because it creates a sense of connection among people and allows the society to develop and grow.
When it is fresh, it is easy to moderate. When it starts to dry, it becomes harder to change its shape. Once carved with the mother tongue, it cannot be easily reshaped and that is why we learn the second language harder than our native one.

They don’t recognize the second language as foreign, but they use both as native depending on the situation.
It is important to know how to use it, principally, for those who are new in the new era and do not know anything about technology, primarily, adult people because they do not grew up with the technology, like kids in the present, they do. b) Technology is a very big and complicated topic to talk about and to learn about it, because it is very extensive. For this reason, to learn how to use it requires intelligence. Computers and intelligent phones have many useful functions that can make our lives easier and in seconds. Above all, first of all, we should know how to do this, because it is kind of different do the things on the real life and in the technological life.
