Structure of the essay

We can’t compare the essay with the composition. This work requires a much more thoughtful and structured presentation.

There are certain requirements for writing this type of work, also called “unwritten legislation”. These foundations are taught to young students in school, and later on to a higher level this knowledge is comprehended in universities and institutes. Following these principles will help you write an excellent essay. Perhaps it’s a little harder to read and difficult than a simple composition written in freestyle.

The most typical essay includes the “beginning” – then where the actuality is described, the main “theses”, the “ending” – where the results are summed up. The presence of thesis in this kind of work is a necessary condition for education.  The student must convince everyone of the correctness of his opinion and carry out the proof by several arguments, necessarily two or three, in some cases even four.

Introduction shows the reader the essence of the problem and prepare for the perception of the main part. It’s not a bad idea to start an introduction with someone else’s epithet, which will perfectly emphasize the essence of the problem. If it is impossible to choose an epithet, since the topic is very complex, it is sufficient to describe the purpose of the study and why the names of this problem attracted attention.

The transition from the introduction to the main part should be smooth with introductory words, so that the difference in the transition from one part to the other is not noticeable. It’s necessary to substantiate the essence of the problem and the personal attitude to it. If you raise a question, you should try to find the answer to it, or bring your statement. It is necessary to justify your point of view, comparing it with the opinion of the author.

The main part can contain examples from life that are related to the topic. If life experience is not enough, you can write about situation from a literature. Here it is important to indicate how such problems were solved in life, and to what result. It is appropriate to give quotes, use proverbs, if only the information pertains to the topic under consideration.

The conclusion should contain generalization of information and inference.
