How to Write a Five Paragraph Essay

Your lessons are really helpfull. i will be giving IELTS GT in a weaks time. I have a doubt about the background statement in the introduction paragraph. you have clearly mentioned in your video that we need to paraphrase the essay topic and not copy it. but still will that not show as if we are lack of ideas and hence we r doing so to add lines. kindly help.

Essays come in various forms, as do subjects, professors, writing styles, and graders

In the writing task 2 introduction paragraph, after paraphrasing and the thesis statement, should I state what I am going to write about in the body paragraphs. For example, “This essay will discuss xxx and xxx”.

Hi Liz,
Thanks for your informative video!
However, I still wonder of your last sentence which belongs to the thesis statements. Could you please show the planning for the body paragraphs? If I write a body paragraph about dieting to gain health, isn’t it make my essay off-topic ?
