These are two patterns that you can use when writing a compare or contrast essay.
I'm showing you both of them here, but in the essay that you're going to write, you're going to use the point-by-point method.
When you're writing a compare and contrast essay, you have to make sure that you mention the two things that you're going to be comparing or contrasting.
And then you also need to use language that shows your reader whether you are comparing or contrasting.
Course 2: Getting Started with Essay Writing This is the second course in the Academic English: Writing specialization.
By introducing you to three types of academic essays, this course will especially help prepare you for work in college classes, but anyone who wants to improve his or her writing skills can benefit from this course.Remember the sample essays in the lesson are typical for an intermediate-level student.Write a compare/contrast essay that fits your own writing ability. In this lesson, we're going to talk about compare and contrast essays.And then also, sometimes we use the word comparison, just to be a general kind of reference to this kind of essay.Always before you write, you need to think about your topic and make a plan.Sometimes we use the word compare to mean both similarities and differences.But when we're talking about writing a compare or contrast essay, keep in mind that compare means similarities, contrast means differences.Remember, that for your essay, you're going to write a point-by-point method.You should try to make some kind of outline similar to the point-by-point outline that I just showed you with topics A and B.Remember, we already said that the thesis statement is the most important sentence in your introduction.And it really is important for the whole essay, because your thesis tells what the essay is going to be about.
