An ideal pattern for IELTS essay writing

An ideal pattern for IELTS essay writing

Many students get confused how they are supposed to write an effective essay to score a high band in writing task 2. Here are some tips to improve your writing skills as well as to be familiar with the pattern of IELTS writing exam. An ideal essay should contain all the required information asked in the question topic. IELTS Essay must be at least 250 words.

1) Introduction

An ideal introduction should have only 3 to 4 sentences. Many students make mistake in the introduction and they start discussing about the whole idea of essay in the introduction part. In this paragraph, we generally try to give the introduction of the topic and our inputs about the topic that we will be discussing in the body paragraph. You can follow the below steps for writing an introduction.

1st Statement: A general statement about the question

2nd Statement: Rewrite the question in your own language.

3rd Statement: Thesis statement

2) Body Paragraph

A body paragraph can have two or three separate paragraphs as per the content. One has to keep in mind that for one idea we make one paragraph. An ideal discussion should concentrate on one idea thoroughly and for another idea there should be a separate paragraph.

For example, if we are discussing the pros and cons of Computers, all the benefits should be in one part of the body paragraph and drawbacks should be in another paragraph.

3) Conclusion

In the conclusion part of the essay, we just give the overall idea of our writing by summarizing the main points. We preferably do not require to write more than 3 to 4 sentences. Avoid using any new additional point or example. Essay tips find here..
