Hints

  • [PLANNING]
    - Use the task input to help you plan but try to avoid copying phrases from the input . Use your own words.
  • [INTRODUCTION and CONCLUSION] 
    - Effective introductory and concluding paragraphs. In the introduction, state the topic clearly, give a brief outline of the issue, saying why it is important or why people have different opinions about it. 
    - DO NOT express you opinion at the beginning of your essay (develop you essay in such a way that it guides the reader to the conclusion you draw). 
    - DO give your opinion in the final paragraph.
  • [SECOND and THIRD PARAGRAPHS] 
    - Structure your argument. Each new paragraph has one main idea, stated in a topic sentence.
    - Include relevant details to support the main idea: these might include examples, rhetorical questions (do no overdo it), controversial or surprising statements... If you include a drawback, give a possible solution, too.
  • [GENERAL] 
    - DO use a relatively formal register and an objective tone. Do not be too emotional. 
    - Remember to use linking adverbials to organise your ideas and to make it easy for the reader to follow your argument.
    - In the exam, allow yourself time to check your grammar, spelling and punctuation thoroughly.
