If writing an essay sounds a little bit scary, just think about it as to be able to improve your writing skills.
Nobody expects your first essay to be perfect. Nor your next, nor your third…
Not even your fiftieth (50th)!
Just make sure you learn something new every time you write an essay, and you also will grow your abilities.
Plus, you don’t want to do it alone.
We’re going to help you out with ten strategies for writing better essays while you’re learning English.
This is an interesting way of writing your essay. First, choose an interest and write a thesis. A thesis may be the main argument of the essay. As an example, when your topic is reading, your thesis may be “Reading enables you to smarter.”
Once you have a thesis, consider carefully your main topic and locate words that relate genuinely to it in various ways. Then, branch out (broaden, diversify) your list to words that aren’t as closely related to most of your topic.
For the example above, most of your list might include words like “books,” “reading” and “intelligent.” Your other “branched out” list might include “Harry Potter,” “reading by a fire” or “test scores.”
This procedure will help expand your vocabulary as time passes. Using these expressed words whenever you write will even make your essay more vibrant (energetic, colorful).
