导学:过去人们常靠写信来互相交流,所以大街上放有很多信箱,使投递信件更加容易。但现在大家都使用手机,电子邮箱等数字通迅交流,很少使用传统信件。那是否意味着信箱已毫无用处呢?

Mr. Zhang has been a postman for more than 20 years. Every day he collects letters twice a day from these mailboxes on the streets in Nanchang city, Jiangxi province. Zhang says over the past decade the number of letters in the mailboxes has become smaller and smaller[This refers to the number, not the actual letters, so we describe a number as getting smaller, not fewer.]. Recently, there have only been a couple of letters waiting to be delivered in these mailboxes.


As letter writing has slowly fallen out of our daily habits, opinions of the mailboxes remaining in the streets are mixed. One citizen says mail-boxes are no longer needed, as most people communicate via other means. One citizen says she believes that the mailboxes on the streets will become a kind of decorationin the future.


Contrary to the drop in the number of personal letters, more and more business and commercial letters are being sent through mailboxes. According to the post offices in Jiangxi province, more than 100 million commercial letters were sent last year, indicating that the mailboxes are still useful, but in different way.
