Basic Essay Structure

how to build a basic English essay piece by piece

Every basic English essay has an Introduction, Body, and Conclusion. The typical basic formula is:

1 Introduction Paragraph

3 Body Paragraph

1 Conclusion Paragraph

I use this formula if I have very little time, since 5 paragraphs is simple and easy to write.
