How to write an essay for new CAE format 2015


I suppose many of you are wondering how to write the new CAE essay. Guess what, I have good news for you! It’s easier than the old one. What do you have to do?

You are given notes on a topic – three bullet points. What you have to do is select two and dwell on them. Forget about the third one. You have to explain which of the two is more important and give reasons.

Below the notes you will find three related opinions. However, you are not obliged to use them. If you decide to do so, you should use your own words, i.e. paraphrase them. Bearing in mind this is not easy, I would simply recommend that you do not to use them at all.

What should your essay consist of:

PARAGRAPH 1 – INTRODUCTION. What you have to do is introduce the topic (go from general to concrete). I would suggest three sentences here. Make the third one a question.

PARAGRAPH 2 – Discuss the first bullet point. Write a good topic sentence and give reasons to support your argument. Point out advantages and maybe also disadvantages (on the other hand, it is ....). Use examples where possible.

PARAGRAPH 3 – Discuss the second bullet point you have chosen in a similar way. It’s not obligatory to point disadvantages again (bear in mind you have to write up to 260 words).

PARAGRAPH 4 – CONCLUSION. State your opinion. Write two or three sentences. Point out clearly which of the two discussed aspects is more important, on the basis of what you have written above. The conclusion should put a full stop to what you have written and not open a new argument.

NOTES:


STYLE


Semi-formal to formal. Be objective and not too emotional. Avoid too expressive words (amazing, magnificent, disgusting).

LANGUAGE


Use various structures and vocabulary with more set phrases and idioms. Pay special attention to appropriate linking devices.

.........

Introducing the topic: Some people believe that, It is often said that.

Supporting your argument: Firstly, Secondly, Last but not least.

Adding information: In addition, Furthermore, What is more, Moreover.

Expressing an opposite point of view: On the other hand.

Summing up: In conclusion, To sum up.

..........

BE always to the point. While writing the essay, look at the instructions from time to time and make sure you do not deviate from them. Leave enough time to check your essay.

N.B.!!! READ as many good models as you can find, analyse them carefully and try to figure out their structure (identify introduction, arguments and conclusion). Underline linking devices and try to remember them, as well as interesting phrases, vocabulary and idioms.

My advice is to have a special notebook, in which to copy the models.

If you are still wondering how to put this into practice look at our essays.
