Essay Writing Structure

Essays often sound tough, but they are the easiest way to write a long answer. In this lesson, we will look at how to write one.


Introduction: Start your answer, and list what you will be writing about
Body: Write about the ideas that will answer your question
Conclusion: Re-write what your ideas are and say why you have answered them

Arguments, Keywords and Definitions

Before we start, let’s go through some terms we use to describe essay writing:
Argument = all of the main points you are going to write about in your essay.
Keywords = words which are important parts of the question
Definition = A one-sentence summary of your whole essay which you write in your introduction.


To write your introduction, follow these steps. Each of these steps means you start a new sentence.
1. Rewrite the question using keywords
2. Write a one sentence answer (definition)
3. List all of the main points of your argument


The body forms most of your essay.
It is the most important part of each essay you write.
In your body, you must argue all of your main points and explain why they answer your question.
Each main point should be in a new paragraph

Body Parts

Each main point should be in a different paragraph. Each paragraph should be set out like this:
Topic Sentence: a short sentence where you repeat one main point from your introduction.
Discussion: Explain why your main point is right and give reasons why
Evidence: Proof that you get from a text, a quote, or a ‘fact’. It should prove that your answer is right
Lead out: Finish the main point so you can go to the next


A conclusion is a short summary of everything you have written in your body paragraph.
It should ‘tie’ everything together.
Example: As pigs are not able to float, they do have wings and cannot control aircraft, they not able to get into the air, and therefore cannot fly.
