IELTS Essay Writing Template

While this essay plan is restricted to 3 paragraphs and 2 ideas per body paragraph, you certainly do not have to follow this plan.  Also, fact 1 and fact 2 could be a positive or negative comment. Further, if you use 2 or more facts per paragraph, you may wish to sum them up or make a small conclusion in the last paragraph line.  You should also try and make sure that each paragraph is linked in some way, either by the flow of ideas or a definite lead in. And remember, don't introduce any new ideas in the conclusion.


INTRODUCTION

Rephrase the essay question using your opinion. Include 3 ideas that you will cover in your essay. The final sentence should contain your thesis statement – a sentence that describes the focus of your ENTIRE essay subject. If you write a good introduction, the rest of the essay is easy!

BODY PARAGRAPH 1
‘In the first place’ or ‘To begin with’ or ‘Firstly’ state your main idea/subject/topic in the first sentence of your first body paragraph.
Fact 1
Comment/further information about fact 1.
Fact 2
Comment/further information about fact 2.

BODY PARAGRAPH 2
‘In the second place’ or ‘Secondly’ state your second main idea/subject/topic in the first sentence.
Fact 1
Comment/further information about fact 1.
Fact 2
Comment/further information about fact 2.

BODY PARAGRAPH 3
‘Finally’ or ‘Lastly’ state your third main idea/subject/topic in the first sentence.
Fact 1
Comment/further information about fact 1.
Fact 2
Comment/further information about fact 2.

CONCLUSION
‘In conclusion’ or ‘Therefore’ or ‘As a result’ conclude your essay by rephrasing the introduction to be a ‘proof’. The introduction should introduce the ideas presented in the body. The conclusion should summarize the ideas presented in the body. So they should be very similar.
