You are going to write an essay in English. Choose a topic about something in our society that interests you. (see list of examples below or come up with your own) Length: 2-3 pages. In the introduction: you present your topic what is the essay about? Think about: How can you catch your readers interest? address the reader, a personal experience, shocking facts, a quote In the body: you discuss the topic thoroughly present your opinions in the matter, reason about the topic from different perspectives, give examples from life, own experiences, literature, etc Think about: Stick to your subject relevant information, be careful with proper paragraphs and structure. you sum up the text, state your opinion once more, perhaps come up with a solution or a convincing answer. As a suggestion, try to end your text with some sort of a twist, a quote or an extraordinary strong sentence. That may have a good impression on the reader and gives the text a fine setting.
