The purpose of an Essay is to demonstrate or develop the ability to construct a coherent argument and employ critical thinking skills.


Dear Sirs,

If I need to improve my English in oral and writing and specially my business writing, so please I need your input. Furthermore, I did a TOEC test and i got 745 .

Tank you for your prompt reply.

Hi eddyabboud,

There's a lot of content that could be useful to you on LearnEnglish. For writing, I'd suggest you browse the Business Magazine, where you can read articles on different aspects of business. You can improve your writing a lot by carefully reading how others write on the topic.

As for speaking, you can use the transcripts of our audio and video materials as models (see, for example Big City Small World and the How to videos) that you can imitate to learn new expressions and improve your pronunciation. Talking to yourself may feel strange at first, but it can really help you develop fluency and build your confidence.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Frank
I think you are referring to the picture of a person with two arguments, A and B - we just use this as an illustration of the concept of the 'Essay'. Essays always contain arguments, and at university level these arguments can be quite complex. When you are writing an essay in your university discipline you will need to evaluate and balance different possible opinions about your topic. Planning the organisation of the essay is very important.
