Best Task 2 Structure - BAND 7+


Do you find it difficult to reach 250 words? Do you think that you are not familiar with the given argument and don't know how to approach the question? On this page I am going to show you in a simple way how to respond to all tasks an reach 250 words easily. If you stick to this structure you will address all the required parts of the task.


Take a look at the following structure:

INTRODUCTION
  • Background info - This is where you state the topic of the whole essay. 
  • Detailed background info - Give a little detail about the topic
  • Thesis - Give your point of view. For example, if the essay is an agree/disagree type you must make it clear whether you agree or disagree: It is agreed that, it is believed that...
  • Outline - Here you should write the topics of the following paragraphs, this is important because it will give the reader (examiner) an idea about what is he going to to read next: "it will be proved by analysing POINT 1 (paragraph 1) and POINT 2 (paragraph 2)" 

SUPPORTING PARAGRAPH 1
  • Topic
  • Example - Give an example on the point you are trying to make
  • Discussion - Discuss the example
  • Conclusion - Give a brief conclusion (one sentence is enough)
SUPPORTING PARAGRAPH 2
  • Topic
  • Example - Give an example on the point you are trying to make
  • Discussion - Discuss the example
  • Conclusion - Give a brief conclusion (one sentence is enough)

CONCLUSION PARAGRAPH
  • Restatement of thesis - Here you should rephrase the thesis you wrote in the introduction
  • Recommendation or Prediction - Make a recommendation or a prediction on how the situation may change in the future.

Now we will analyse the following example and disassemble the model answer into smaller parts.

ESSAY:
Environmental pollution is a serious issue and it is important to take steps on an individual level to reduce it. But now, since it is becoming an international issue, it is time to take environmental protection to a higher level. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

INTRODUCTION
Background info
During much of the twentieth century, little action was taken to encourage lifestyle changes that are environmentally sound.
Detailed background info 
However, over the last twenty years, significant efforts have been made to educate humanity about the threats modern lifestyles pose to the environment. 
Thesis
It is agreed that environmental protection efforts need to be brought to the fore of global priorities and taken to a more advanced level of activity. 
Outline
Manners in which this can be done will be analyzed, namely through the global employment of renewable energy and through global educational efforts.

SUPPORTING PARAGRAPH 1
Topic
Firstly, renewable energy needs to be developed further to really make a difference in mankind's fight against global pollution. 
Example
Take solar power, for example. At the moment, solar power is still notably more expensive than petrol, although the gap is closing quickly. 
Discussion
With a little extra push, solar power could become a cheaper energy source, thus inciting pollution-causing petroleum industries to shift their focus to the renewable energy sector. 
Conclusion
It is for this reason that environmental protection should be taken to a higher level.
SUPPORTING PARAGRAPH 2
Topic
Secondly, a big part of the fight against pollution is educating people about the measures they can take to help. 
Example 
For instance, advertizing on highly frequented websites like Facebook could do a lot to raise awareness of the lifestyle people need to employ to best help the environment. 
Discussion 
Because online efforts to promote environmental awareness are low at the moment, it is felt increasing them could encourage people to be receptive to new lifestyle changes. 
Conclusion
It is for this reason that the idea of beefing up the world's environmental protection efforts is supported.
CONCLUSION PARAGRAPH
Restatement of thesis
After analyzing how growth in renewable energy and awareness can help the current global environmental crisis, it is felt the argument for environmental policy improvements has been proven. 
Recommendation
It is recommended these policies be put into action the world over.
