How To Write An Effective Introduction

No matter it is, about writing an essay or a report, you need to write an introduction. Although you don’t get the entire marks based on your introduction but it surely has a huge role to play in your overall score. So, writing an effective essay always begins with writing an effective introduction. No, how can you write an effective essay? Well, there are three things that you can consider-:

  1. Write a general statement about the topic. For e.g., if the topic is about fossil fuels or the need of new alternative ways to generate energy, you could begin by stating; fossil fuels have been an integral part of our lives since ages. Now, they are at the verge of extinction. You can even quote something that you have heard of in recent times.
  2. The next most easiest and effective thing to do is paraphrase the question. Make use of synonyms, use idioms. The point is just take the idea from the question and paraphrase it to use it in the introduction. Remember, it is important that you use synonyms, because if you don’t and end up using the same words, you may lose marks.
  3. The last thing to do is write the thesis sentence. The thesis sentence is the one that straight away points out your point of view on it. For e.g. I completely agree with the statement given. Or maybe my opinion contradicts with the one provided.

Remember, introduction is the easiest part of writing an essay and the most important also. Make sure you put the best foot forward.

ielts-task-1-fast-food

How to do it?
Divide what all you have to write in four paragraphs.

INTRODUCTION
This is the simplest thing to do while writing the paragraph because it already has been provided to you in the question. The first line of the question is itself the introduction. Now while writing it don’t just copy whatever is written. Make sure you paraphrase it. That is make changes to it, use synonyms of the words already used.
BODY 1 and BODY 2
The two paragraphs that contain body must explain the graph. Make comparisons where necessary, but don’t just try to copy down the entire graph. You do need to cover the entire graph, but only the important points. Remember you need to write 150 words, at maximum 170, not more than that.
CONCLUSION
This paragraph should bring out the two extremes of the entire graph. May be something was used or done more and the other thing very less, something that is the gist of the entire graph.

Graphs are really easy, once you understand what the graph is all about. Make sure you understand the graph correctly before you start writing the answer.
