Teaching English : How to Write an Essay


Hi, my name is Mike Mitchell, and today I’d
like to explain how to write an essay. In writing an essay, there are three basic parts.
There’s an introduction, the body of the essay, and the conclusion. In an essay, for the introduction,
we generally use what’s called the inverse pyramid, and this is where you start off with
a broad introduction, and you end up with a very specific point, or we often call it
a thesis, at the end of the introduction. The body consists of your arguments or statements,
and then a conclusion will start at a specific point, normally a brief summary of your thesis,
and will generally go back out again, to a broad spectrum. For the body, you have your
choice. You can either have a descriptive essay, or you can have an argumentative, and
for a descriptive essay, you generally are just going to provide information to the reader,
and for an argumentative essay, you’re generally going to debate some point.
