A huge number of students choose to study English independently on a self-study basis rather than attend a formal course. However, without the assistance of a teacher, students often find it difficult to manage their studies.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
If I am asked to write the introductory statement for this essay, then I'd start constructing my paragraph with the following steps:
- Background (see sentence 1 below)
- Thesis (see sentence 2)
- Outline (sentence 3)
It is argued that a mammoth number of students opt self-study approach when it comes to learning English. It is agreed that this group of students is more likely to gain obstacles to allocate their studies efficiently. Firstly, this essay will discuss the fact that independent learners have no time preparing a syllabus and secondly, how this might lead serious consequences for students facing a tight deadline, followed by a reasoned conclusion.
As this essay agrees with the motion, making a concession statement in the end of body paragraphs demonstrates that you have thought about the other side of the argument, so that there will be balanced views. Let's give try for the concession:
Body 1: Despite this, students with high-level performance in many developed countries, where this problem is most acute can access free online materials and will continue to study.
Body 2: However, some may argue that the consequences can be tackle if students set their goals objectively and work towards achieving their goals.
Hope this helps, eddy suaib.
