But that limitation is also the five paragraph essay's biggest asset.

Sometimes writing a five paragraph essay can feel a little stifling.

Those are the basic components of the five paragraph essay.

You're probably thinking that this is a pretty limiting way to write, that there's not a whole lot of flexibility in the five-paragraph essay.

College essays have 3 basic parts:Introduction, the Multi-Paragraph Body, and Conclusion.

Hi Liz! Your study material is amazing and is helping me a lot to prepare for IELTs. I have a few questions. In the Discussion Essay type (as the one you have posted above), do we need to always write a separate paragraph for our opinion (e.g. body: Finally, in my opinion…)? If my opinion concurs with one of the two sides, then can I just have two body paragraphs ( A and B side ) because I stated in my thesis that I concurred with one of them?
Also, I was wondering if we are allowed to use any white-out to erase pen during the exam and if we are given some additional papers to write the layout for the organization of our essays.
Thank you so much you’re such a great teacher!!!!!

I cannot stress enough how crucial your website has been for my IELTS preparation.
I have a question regarding the “discuss both views and give your opinion” type of essay.
Can i incorporate my opinion in the second body paragraph, or a seperate paragraph is needed in order to achieve a good score? (i need at least 7,5)

Trying to cram an entire 5 paragraph persuasive essay within 100 minutes is not a good idea.

Good afternoon Liz! Thank you very much for all your help!
In a discussion essay, when the prompt asks for our opinion and our opinion stands solely with one of the two aspects. Should it be advisable to state our opinion only in the introduction, or we should restate it in the paragraph where we elaborate on the aspect that we stand for, using again one of the phrases that you taught us (in my opinion, I think, I believe)?

You can choose. If you agree with one side, put it in the appropriate body paragraph. If you have your own specific opinion, have another body paragraph. And don’t forget to put your opinion in the introduction. See my advanced lessons to purchase if you need more training:

In an opinion essay, you give your opinion and explain it in the body paragraphs. There is nothing else in your essay – only your opinion. In the discussion essay, you must present both sides and also state what you think as well. See my advanced lessons if you feel you need training:

Think of the five-paragraph essay as just that

and another question:
it will be ok or not? if i write about both side but the opinion is completly agree or completly disagree at the introduction paragraph in agree/disagree essay?
