I don't know should I use this in TOEFL......
5-paragraph essay contains 5 paragraphs.簡直廢話
1. Introduction paragraph:It will start at a hook, then a connection sentance. And it will end with thesis statement.
Hook: Something can make reader interested. i.e: a general statement, story, facts or a question.
Connecting information: connecting hook to thesis.還是廢話. Normally it will answer this questions: "What is it?", "Why is it interesting?", "How is the Hook related to the statement?"(I like this best.), "What is the background information in essay topic?"
Thesis statement:Don't need to explan.Then main opinion in the essay.
2.3.4. Body(Supporting) paragraph: It has topic sentance, supporting reasons and details(3 of them will be the best, 1 or 2 will be week), and a concluding/transitional sentances.
So it will contain 8 sentances in one paragraph.....it's a lot....
5. Conclusion paragraph: Restating thesis in different way. Sometimes it willsummaize the points in body paragraph. And often end with suggestion, opinion or a prediction.
