An ultimate guide to ESL essay writing

There are four (4) main types; Descriptive, Narrative, Expository, and Persuasive. Each has its own unique way and rules, but they all follow almost the same format.

  • Introduction
    • Descriptive
      These revolve basically around describing something ranging from emotions to experience. To start with, you’ll have to select a topic to write on. This topic has to be very interesting, and you should be able to have information at your fingertips to help you put together an exciting write-up. Your next step is to create a “thesis” statement that encapsulates the whole document. It gives direction and purpose to the essay.
    • Narrative
      This is a written account of usually personal experiences and offers a unique opportunity for you to know who you’re. Here you begin by brainstorming on a good topic to write on. The topic should be clear enough for you to enjoy writing on it. The trick here is that, write on something that doesn’t require you to think so much as this is a narration of something related to you.
    • Expository
      This genre allows for an investigation and evaluation of an idea expressed in writing. You’ll need to know some very important formalities with writings such as this; reasons for your choice of topic and your audience. Your initial step is to investigate and research on your ideas before you begin. List all the important focal points to be used and make sure you have enough evidence to back them up.
    • Persuasive
      They are types that allow for a comprehensive stand on an idea by using evidence to buttress your point. There is usually two sides to the story, and one has to use reasons to support their stands.Top of Form and Bottom of Form.
  • Body
    • Descriptive
      The writing begins properly here where you need to make use of your sensual organs. These writings are very sensitive and to better make your readers appreciate your style, conscious efforts must be made to engage all the five sensors in the writing. Create paragraphs in your write to make it easier for your readers to comprehend your thoughts and ideas.
    • Narrative
      Writing the body should hinge on the following;
      1. The beginning of your story
      2. Where it climax
      3. How it ends
    • Make use of the first person as it has to be personal in every way and describe those other characters involved in the story.
    • Expository
      This is where you take the time to develop your points with each paragraph introducing them. Each paragraph should contain the main point, supporting sentences and examples in the form of evidence.
    • Persuasive
      Just like expository, each paragraph in this write-up should contain your main points, with sentences supporting and explaining why your points or ideas are better with concrete examples. In the same paragraphs, you’ve to structure your arguments in such a way that seeks to downplay the opposite side of the debate.
  • Conclusion
    End by giving a simple and concise summary of your essay and should relate to your “thesis” statement as well. Using these steps will help you improve your writing and don’t for to proofread for grammatical error as well.
