Student or Learner
I was just wondering if saying that "Nowadays, technology has become very advanced" is a good sentence. Apparently it is not a very good sentence even though it's grammatically correct. This is according to my journalist father who said that the sentence doesn't actually tell him anything. It is a given that technology is very advanced. Stating so is redundant unless you intend to compare it to technology in the olden days.
Does it make sense? Is my father correct? I find that this is a bit of a higher order thinking. Is it necessary to teach this to students aged 15 and 16?
Thank you for the quick reply!
