Swollen palms, hot cheeks and blank paper, sounds familiar? Still your neighbor is writing full steam, and you got stuck in the introduction? Good news for natural, social or those between English essay is a great formula in which you put your creative thoughts. The result? Excellent (5) rating.
The essay consists of three parts: introduction, elaboration and conclusion. The discussion is divided into two sections – the first is the reasons that you agree with the given topic, and the other reasons you disagree with the pros and cons.
Each of these four paragraphs should be visibly separated.
The introduction and the conclusion, ie pros and cons should be approximately the same size. So your essay at first glance looks nicely and aesthetically pleasing.
The introduction should be short, 3-4 sentences. It is an objective and sumptuous presentation of the subject you write about. Try to use the keyword as little as possible from the topic, and if you have to mention it several times, use its synonyms. If you do not know what you would write in the introduction, go from describing the topic itself – what you are writing about, how much people attach importance to it, and so on. To make it easier to translate into writing, end with the introduction of some question or statement, eg: “However, not everyone has the same opinion on this topic.” or “The question is: is ____ better than____?”
It is very important that you do not put your own opinion in the introduction – you leave him to the conclusion.
First, write two reasons for two reasons, no longer needed. Some reasons can serve as both for and against, but better write four completely different. Otherwise, you leave the impression that you are not creative enough or you do not think about it. If you do not have the inspiration, take a deep breath, read the theme and the introduction again, and write down what comes first. Who knows, maybe that’s exactly what will allow pencils to work.
Support and illustrate – argumentation here is very important. For each reason, you have to explain why you just chose them. If after the completed sentence in the air more questions “Why?” or “How?” , add another sentence that you will answer them. In the elaboration you are a lawyer representing both sides. A good reason plus a good explanation means that your essay is balanced and you have understood the subject. Do not directly address the reader and ask his questions and make his arguments objectively. Also, many experienced teachers recommend avoiding expressions such as “Where I live …”, “I know a lot of people who …”, “When I was certain age …”
Linking words – are essential for coherence and cohesion. Your thoughts are related to them, and they are not thrown anywhere. What they mean in the Croatian language, namely, in fact, moreover, on the other hand, given that in the English language they are, however, although, furthermore, on the other hand, firstly etc. There are several categories of linking words, and if you English is not a stronger party, it teaches them a few and only uses them in their essays. On this page there is a list of them, for some you have heard and some will learn and enrich your vocabulary.
The essay is a semi-formal type of text which means you do not need to use words like who or ought to get a good rating, but abbreviations such as I’ve, it’s or you’re not allowed. Write full forms, so you get a lot of words. Attempt to use as small as colloquial terms like bust into sb, pop up, hang out, and the like. If you already use them, do not mix them with some formal expressions.
You do not even make your own opinion in the elaboration!
The conclusion is like a missing part so that the essay becomes an encircled whole. Start with some of the linking words. You get the most words in the phrase: “With everything that has been said …”. In this section you summarize everything you have so far written in your essay. It should be about the same size as the introduction, meaning 3-4 sentences. You can not introduce new arguments, nor do you need to further explain the old ones. Now your thoughts are fine! Deal for one side and explain why you are for or against.
