Types of essay – Writing task 2 (part 2) --> IELTS PREPARATION PANTAI INDAH KAPUK


In previous article, I already discuss about two types of essays. Here, I will discuss about other essay types.

a.       Two sides of argument
Usually the task words are:
-          Discuss
-          Compare/contrast
-          Advantages/disadvantages
When writing an essay discussing about two sides of views, the students should give balanced presentation, which means they should write equally about both sides of the issue. Furthermore, in conclusion, the students could indicate their position.
 b. Evaluate an arguments
Usually the task words are:
-          To what extent….?
-          How important …..?
-          What do you think?
The students will probably take a position which is neither in total agreement (100%) nor total disagreement (0%), but somewhere in between. Hence, they need to explain why.
c. Make choices and justify
Usually the task words are:
-          From options A, B, C, D, E, etc, choose 3 most important. Justify your choice.
This is the most uncommon essay types in academic writing, but usually found in general writing.
Each of the student’s choices becomes the main idea of one body paragraph and they have to give reasons for choosing in the orders.

So,,, before you start write your idea into introduction, body, and conclusion, it would be wise to analyse which essay type is to help you make a good essay.
