Master the Five-Paragraph Essay

my school essay in chinese language

The five-paragraph essay is one of the most common composition assignments out there, whether for high school or college students. It is a classic assignment because it presents an arena in which writers can demonstrate their command of language and punctuation, as well as their logic and rhetorical skills. These skills are useful not only for classroom assignments and college application essays, but even in the business world, as employees have to write memorandums and reports, which draw on the same skills.

Mastering the five-paragraph essay is doable, and here are some tips.

Components of a Good Essay

The five-paragraph essay lives up to its name, because is has five paragraphs, as follows: an introductory paragraph that includes a thesis, three body paragraphs, each which includes support and development, and one concluding paragraph.

Its structure sometimes generates other names for the same essay, including three-tier essay, one-three-one, or a hamburger essay. Whether you are writing a cause-and-effect essay, a persuasive essay, an argumentative essay or a compare-and-contrast essay, you should use this same structure and the following specifics.

Keys to Introductory Paragraphs

Any introductory paragraph contains from three to five sentences and sets up the tone and structure for the whole essay. The first sentence should be a so-called hook sentence and grabs the reader. Examples of hook sentences include a quote, a joke, a rhetorical question or a shocking fact. This is the sentence that will keep your readers reading. Draw them in.

What Makes a Thesis Statement

The last sentence should be your thesis statement, which is the argument you are going to make in the essay. It is the sentence that contains the main point of the essay, or what you are trying to prove. It should be your strongest claim in the whole essay, telling the reader what the paper is about. You should be able to look back at it to keep your argument focused. The other sentences in this paragraph should be general information that links the first sentence and the thesis.

Content of Supporting Paragraphs

Each of the next three paragraphs follows the same general structure of the introductory paragraph. That is, they have one introduction sentence, evidence and arguments in three to five sentences, and a conclusion. Each one of them should define and defend your thesis sentence in the introduction.

The first body paragraph should be dedicated to proving your most powerful point. The second body paragraph can contain your weakest point, because the third body paragraph can, and should, support another strong argument.

Concluding Paragraph Tips

Your concluding paragraph is important, and can be difficult. Ideally, you can begin by restating your thesis. Then you can recall or restate all three to five of your supporting arguments. You should summarize each main point. If you have made similar arguments multiple times, join those together in one sentence.

Essentially, in the concluding or fifth paragraph, you should restate what your preceding paragraphs were about and draw a conclusion. It should answer the question: So what? Even if the answer seems obvious to you, write it down so that your reader can continue to easily follow your thinking process, and hopefully, agree with you.

A Note on Compare and Contrast

Let’s look a little more closely at the compare-and-contrast essay, which is a very common assignment. It can be a confusing one due to the terms used. Comparing two items is to show how they are alike. Contrasting two items is to show how they are different. One way to approach this essay is to make a grid for yourself that compares or contrasts two items before you start writing. Then, write about those characteristics. Do not try to write about both. The name of the essay is actually misleading.

Keep these pointers in mind when you need to write a five-paragraph essay, and your end result will be clear in its argument, leading your reader to the right conclusion. Often, that conclusion is to agree with you, and who doesn’t like to be right?

Talking about School Life in Chinese

Posted by Lilian Li 14804

Are you studying in China? Whether it’s university, high school or middle school, today’s article will show you basic words and expressions you can use when you want to talk about school life in Chinese.

1. Imagine you are at school, these are vocabularies of school places you may mention when you talk with your friends!

Assuming that you’re the first time to be in your school, it’s common you may ask for directions . Let’s put the above words in practice:

  Hànyǔ jiàoshì zài jǐ lóu? A:汉语教室在几楼? (Which floor is the Chinese classroom at?)

  Zài sān lóu. B:在三楼。 (It’s on the third floor.)

  Wùlǐ shyàn shì zài nǎli? A:物理实验室在哪里? (Where is the physics laboratory?)

Zài yī hào jiàoxué lóu de èr lóu. B:在一号教学楼的二楼。 (It is on the 2nd floor in No.1 teaching building.)

  xǐshǒu jiān zài nǎli? A:洗手间在哪里? (Where is the washroom?)

  Zài yī lóu. Nán xǐshǒu jiān zài zuǒbiān, nǚ xǐshǒu jiān zài yòubiān. B:在一楼。男洗手间在左边,女洗手间在右边。 (It’s on the first floor. Man’s washroom on the left, woman’s on the right.)

2. School is a place where you have diffirent lessons, homework and exams:

Actually, everything will be interesting and amazing when you arrive at your school at the beginning, and you will be so excited to express your enthusiasm even to grasses and flowers.

3.The following paragraph shows you how to talk about school life:

Wǒ jīnnián yǒu shí mén kè, Yīngyǔ, Hànyǔ, yīnyuè, shùxué, diànnǎo, wùlǐ, huàxué, shēngwù, dìlǐ hé lìshǐ. 我今年有十门课,英语、汉语、音乐、数学、电脑、物理、化学、生物、地理和历史。 (I have ten different subjects this year: English, Chinese, music, maths, computer, physics, biology, geography, and history.)

Wǒ xǐhuan shàng Hànyǔ kè, yīnwèi Hànyǔ hěn yǒuqù. 我喜欢上汉语课,因为汉语很有趣。 (I like Chinese class because it’s very interesting.)

Wǒ měitiān shàng liù jié kè. Wǒmen bā diǎn kāishǐ shàngkè. Wǒ shàngwǔ shàng sì jié kè. 我每天上六节课。我们八点开始上课。我上午上四节课。 (I have 6 lessons every day. We start at 8 o’clock. I have 4 four classes in the morning. )

Wǒmen zhōngwǔ shí’èr diǎn chī wǔfàn. Wǒ xiàwǔ zài shàng liǎng jié kè, wǒmen sān diǎn fàngxué. 我们中午十二点吃午饭。我下午再上两节课,我们三点放学。 (We have lunch at 12 o’clock. Then I have 2 classes in the afternoon. We finish school at 3 o’clock.)
