What is an essay?

An essay is a small piece of text written on some topic assigned by a teacher or chosen by ourselves. It can be an assignment or may be given in an exam with a limited number of word counts.

What are the different types of essays?

An essay mainly comprises of four types:

• Narrative essays

• Descriptive essays

• Expository essays

• Persuasive essays

Can I use a friend’s essay for reference?

Yes, you can always use a friend’s essay for learning purpose, but copying it is a bad idea.

Can I seek help from internet?

You can surely use internet for research, but ordering a whole ready written essay from any website that offers essay writing online services is an offence. Using the content written by someone else on your own credit may not be a constructive approach.

What is a narrative essay?

A narrative essay is just like story telling. It is an account of the writer’s personal experience. It can be an event, a happening, or a discussion of an important day of someone’s life.

How a narrative essay should look?

A narrative essay must be simple. It should be a single event, not the story of whole life of a writer. Do not mix biography with narrative essays.

What is a descriptive essay?

As clear from its name, these types of essays are descriptions of something, a place, a new invention or anything else.

How a descriptive essay should look?

A descriptive essay should be informative enough consisting of all the necessary details for its readers.

What is an expository essay?

Expository essays are an exposure to a whole lot of things. It should be purely an informative essay, not including any personal views.

How an expository essay should look?

An expository essay must be highly informative. A writer must refrain from the use of personal statements.

What is a persuasive essay?

Persuasive essay is a convincing text that persuades readers to agree with the views expressed in an essay.

How a persuasive essay should look?

A persuasive essay must be a debate. By the end of a good persuasive essay, readers may have adopted the point of view of a writer without any doubt.

What is the structure of an essay?

An essay must be divided in three parts. First part is the introduction and it is the highlight of all the point to be discussed further. Second part is the body of an essay while the third part is its conclusion which should signal readers about the end of an essay and should not have any new points discussed in it.

What if I am uncertain about any information in my essay?

Try to use authentic details in your essay, if you are not certain about anything; do not let it reflect in your essay. Make your essay sound confident.

What types of sentences are preferable in essays?

A good essay must have simple sentence structure. Complicated sentences make an essay boring and tedious.
