Essay Writing

An essay is simply a piece of writing which presents a point of view.

Some things to keep in mind when writing essays:

  • use formal language (complete sentences, correct spelling and punctuation, avoid slang)
  • it is understood when you are writing an essay that it is YOUR point of view; avoid saying "me" or "I" (for example, do not say, "I think…" or "in my opinion" etc.)
  • essays follow a simple pattern; the more organized an essay is, the more effective it is
