How to write an essay?

Apart from the clar­ity and con­text an equally impor­tant thing in proper choice of words grouped into sim­ple sen­tences that express what you want to tell with no scope of ambi­gu­ity and con­tra­dic­tion. Your con­tent and clar­ity of ideas should be sup­ported by the cor­rect­ness of the expres­sion. Let’s see some of the prob­lems that we face gen­er­ally regard­ing this.

Incli­na­tion to use high sound­ing words:

You may won­der that peo­ple with high vocab­u­lary face this kind of prob­lem. They grow some strong and irra­tional lik­ing for high sound­ing words and are under the impres­sion that the use of such words impresses the eval­u­a­tor. But the result is just the oppo­site. So try to use less high sound­ing words as possible.

Con­fus­ing or wrong references:

In terms of gram­mar this mis­take is the result of improper use of pro­nouns. It is one of the best prac­tices to read a book on com­mon mis­takes in Eng­lish and go through the rules and sen­tence cor­rec­tions as many as pos­si­ble before you write an essay.

Wrong use of verbs:

Wrong use of verbs in a sen­tence is one of the most com­mon mis­takes that peo­ple make that catches the atten­tion of the peo­ple who cor­rects. Chiefly there are two kinds of mis­takes that peo­ple make. They are agree­ment between the sub­ject and the verb of a sen­tence and mis­takes that are related to the proper use of the sequence of tense.

Wrong order of the words:

If you write sen­tences like, “the hunter with a long tail killed a tiger”, your essay is sure to tickle the per­son who eval­u­ates. But then, tick­ling the eval­u­a­tor obvi­ously is not the objec­tive of your essay. “The hunter killed a tiger with a long tail” is dif­fer­ent from “the hunter with a long tail killed a tiger”. The first sen­tence means that the hunter killed a tiger with a long tail but the sec­ond sen­tence means that the hunter killed a tiger by using the long tail as killing device or weapon. At the ear­li­est point of time, see if you are in the habit of writ­ing these kinds of sen­tences. Most of the time, one com­mits these kinds of mis­takes because of the neg­li­gence or lack of atten­tion. That’s why they almost always go unno­ticed. The best way to avoid these type of mis­takes is to edit the essay once you are through with it.

How to essays in English?

Eng­lish doesn’t mean only Eng­lish gram­mar but also speak­ing and writ­ing in Eng­lish. But when peo­ple think about Eng­lish they will get the thought of gram­mar. Gram­mar is the basics of sen­tences which are used in under­stand­ing sen­tences in Eng­lish while read­ing and writ­ing. Now a days peo­ple are hav­ing much knowl­edge of gram­mar but no knowl­edge of how to use it prop­erly. So it’s very essen­tial to learn read­ing and writ­ing in Eng­lish which we face in our real world sit­u­a­tions. In my pre­vi­ous post I explained about how to read com­pre­hen­sion pas­sage. In today’s post let’s know about how to write Eng­lish essays and what to write.

Con­text of the topic:

Before writ­ing an essay we need to know the con­text of the topic. You are expected to under­stand the con­text and see to it that what­ever you write in your essay is not irrel­e­vant to the con­text pre­scribed. Every essay topic requires you to under­stand it in a par­tic­u­lar way. Mis­un­der­stand­ing the topic obvi­ously results in a wrong pre­sen­ta­tion. You have to cus­tomize what­ever you know about the topic and key words in the topic to suit the need of the moment.  You should have ade­quate infor­ma­tion on each main idea of the topic given.

Clar­ity of the ideas to be presented:

Clar­ity of the ideas that you present in your essay is slightly dif­fer­ent from the con­text of the essay topic in the sense that proper under­stand­ing of the con­text of the essay enables you to know what you have to focus on. Whereas, hav­ing clar­ity of the ideas will help you in avoid­ing the risk of devi­at­ing or vague in what you want to say.

If you are clear about the mat­ter then you will not face any prob­lem in lack of thoughts at the time of writ­ing them. This also enables you to get the elo­quent result. When you are clear about the points that you want to present, you will be able to orga­nize them in an order.

After that, next step is to cus­tomize. You may be fol­low­ing con­tem­po­rary adver­tise­ments closely and observ­ing con­tem­po­rary chil­dren. You may have good under­stand­ing of both of these. But when you are asked to attempt an essay on this, you are not expected to write what­ever you know. Rather you know have to mould your knowl­edge and con­tem­po­rary under­stand­ing and form the cor­rect essay.

Struc­ture of the essay:

As it is often said that a good essay is that which have focused from the begin­ning on what you want to say; a clear, infor­ma­tive and con­vinc­ing mid­dle part to elab­o­rate what­ever you have men­tioned in the begin­ning and well con­cluded end part to sum up the exact infor­ma­tion that you want to say.

An impor­tant issue to take care of is the begin­ning of the essay. Because you may be asked to restrict your essay to a cer­tain words, it is bet­ter to start your essay with a sen­tence that straight away explains the topic that you are going to say. This focused begin­ning should lead to an elab­o­ra­tion of your per­spec­tive and essay should have an end part in which you will give your con­clu­sion sup­port­ing your begin­ning of the essay.
