Liebe Blogleser,
Englisch, ein Fach über das viele Schülerinnen und Schüler das folgende Sagen:

„Englisch: da kann ich doch nix drauf lernen!“.

Stimmt das?
Wir sind der Meinung: NEIN! Jedes Schulfach hat „Lern-“ und „Übungsanteile“. Ja nach Fach verschieben sich diese. Mathematik zum Beispiel hat einen sehr großen „Übungsanteil“. So ist es auch in Englisch!
Heute gibt Ihnen unsere Englisch-Dozentin Michaela Heidig einen Einblick in das Schreiben von Antworttexten….

Wie schreibe ich einen guten Text? How to write a good text!

  1. Use relative clauses:

who, whom, whose, which, that

  1. Use conjunctions:

and, but, or, yet, for, so, neither/nor, either/or, after, although, because, both/and, even though, however, if, in order to, nevertheless, since, so that, that‘s why, when, whereas, while

3. Have a clear structure

a) Introduction:

It is a short paragraph – usually about three sentences. In an argument essay, it usually describes or summarizes both sides of the present situation and says what you are going to do in your essay.

b) Body:
Two words: Use Paragraphs!
The body of the essay should ALWAYS be divided into paragraphs. Never write just one long paragraph.
Why? The empty space makes your essay easier to read.
Having paragraphs shows that you have (probably) put related ideas together. How many paragraphs in the body? Either two paragraphs or three.
When do I use two or three paragraphs?
It depends on your ideas!
Use TWO paragraphs if you are giving both sides of the argument or situation – one paragraph for, and one against (or the opposite).

Use THREE paragraphs if you are only supporting one side.
Use TWO paragraphs to agree in one paragraph and then disagree in the second paragraph…..
Even if you are completely confused and your ideas are all mixed up, you should still make a paragraph. Just skip a line somewhere. Your essay will be easier to read.
c) Conclusion:
The Conclusion is the end of the essay. It is a short paragraph – about THREE sentences. It often has the same idea as the Introduction, only in different words.
Some people think of the essay as a sandwich. The Introduction and Conclusion are the bread, and the Body is the filling in the center. If the introduction looks good, people will carry on to the body. Hopefully, the conclusion will leave them with a nice taste in their mouth…

4. Avoid fragments, run-ons and comma splices

5. Use the present tense


6. Keep it short and simple


7. Read through your finished text and correct mistakes

Alles Gute! We wish you good luck!

Viel Erfolg und immer schön im Üben bleiben! Gerne können wir Sie dabei unterstützen:
