    the times background of each.

    When they are faced with problems, young people and old people take different attitudes from each other. I think it's due to the times background of each. Young people who live in the information age try to solve problems using information. On the other hand, old people who have experienced an industrial age try to solve problems using their trial and errors, that is their years of experience. In short, young people usually use information and old people use experience.

    Does this make sense? By "times", I meant "age" or "period".
    the times background of each.

    Re: the times background of each.

    What about this?
    it's due to the difference of periodic and experiential backgrounds of each.

    [QUOTE=keannu;1246616] When they are faced with problems, young people and old people have different attitudes. [Delete the rest of that sentence. It doesn't make sense.]

    I think it's due to changing times and the background of each. Young people who live in the information age try to solve problems using information, while older people who grew up in the industrial age try to solve problems by trial and error - that is, their years of experience. In short, young people usually use information and old people use experience.

    You don't think old people use information? You don't think young people have experience?

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Unnatural. "Experiencial backgrounds" is wordy and awkward, and "periodic" doesn't fit. Have you looked it up?
