Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? There is nothing that young people can teach older people. Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

I disagree with the statement that there's nothing that young people can teach older people. I feel this way for many potential reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.

First and foremost, no one is omnicient and youngsters can oftentimes provide older individuals with valuable knowledge about various subjects. Younger generations are more familiar with the latest technology than the previous generations and they even know how to use or fix the new devices. For instance, when my older brother bought his first computer, he did not have any idea how to use it. Therefore, he used to invite me to his house so that I show him how to handle multiple issues on the screen. He was once typing a work document and the system froze. He had a deadline and he did not know what to do. Thus, he reached out to me on my phone and I explained to him the required steps to troubleshoot the problem. This instance illustrates that old people may be more stressed than young people and consequently, they are not patient enough to learn to deal with modern devices. Another example is my nephew, who was really interested in car models, brands and everything about automobiles. When I was thinking about purchasing my first car, I paid my brother's a visit in order to talk to my nephew and get more information about vehicles. Although he was just a little kid, I very much benefited from the tips he gave me. All in all, we cannot and should not overlook the priceless knowledge that we could gain from people younger than us.

Secondly, in the age of the internet, older people are no longer the ultimate reference for knowledge and experience. In the past before the era of the world-wide web, older people with years and years of trials and errors were the most significant resource for their children to learn more about life and to seize better opportunities. However, the development of the internet and the immense amount of data that one can display just by few clicks made this idea obsolete. The question now is not whether you know something. Instead, it's about how skilled you are in using web browsers and search engines. Hence, younger generations are actually, in many situations, more informed and more well-rounded than, say, their parents since they are more tech-savvy.

To sum up, the argument that older individuals can learn nothing from young people seems preposterous to me for the reasons mentioned above.

Better to have 5 paragraphs with 3 arguments. And try always support/against one side but compare two sides, like this:

para 1: introduction
para 2: reason 1. address both of the views presented for reason 1
para 3: reason 2. address both of the views presented for reason 2
para 4: reason 3. address both of the views presented for reason 3
para 5: conclusion.

So how to find out those reasons. There is a formula:

reasons == advantages or

reasons == disadvantages

for example, we can always apply 'save time', 'save/make money', 'find a job', 'make friends', 'get more information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.

or we can apply 'waste time', 'waste money', 'no job', 'make bad friends', 'get bad information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.
