Hello, I am Arlene. This website is all about Alexander Graham Bell. Please enjoy this web page and I hope you all learn something new!

            Alexander Graham bell was known for creating the first practical working telephone. But he wouldn't have gotten that far without the help of others. By the encouragement of his family, and his interest in hearing and speech, it led him to experimenting hearing devices. He got the idea for the telephone from a German inventor, Hermann von Helmholz. The telephone in greek means "far sound". That was why it was named the telephone. The telephone is getting better and better as time goes by. Its like someone baked a cookie and different people come and decorate it to make it better. Although Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone, there was no bell or ringer to it, it was Thomas A. Watson that invented the bell for the telephone. 

            I think that Alexander Graham Bell's invention brought us a to a better future. I think phones is an important device to have in your home or near you. Without the phone it would be a lot harder to communicate. Billions of people use the phone. 

             What would happen if the phone never existed? Well communication would be a lot harder and slower, and dangerous. I mean what if someone is near death and you need help but there was no phone? Or an important document of yours was left in your friends car, and you need it right now? How about ordering food? There is always another option like email, or online chat, or online ordering but if you think about it. a phone is very handy to have. - Arlene So
