Recommendations for the text of the essay:
Remember that you are writing an essay for another person who is not your friend or colleague, which means that you stick to neutral expressions, use standard speech patterns, write essentially and do not deviate from the topic.
Do not abuse the adjectives, exclamation marks and avoid common words (all, any, every). Also, do not use phrasal verbs (put it, get off, etc.) and abbreviations (can’t instead of cannot, don’t instead of don not, etc.). Adhere to the academic and informational style in the presentation: avoid personal pronouns (I, my, we, our) and give preference to active voice instead of passive.
To give objectivity to the text, express an opinion on the topic using impersonal constructions (It is believed that …; It cannot be argued that … etc.) and non-categorical verbs (suggest, suppose, claim, etc.). Correctly expressing your opinion on the question will help you such words as apparently (obviously), arguably (probably) and other adverbs.
Divide the main part of the text into paragraphs by meaning, which can be interconnected and complement each other. Do not overload paragraphs with sentences and make them all approximately equal in volume. At the beginning of the paragraph it is better to use the word-bunch, which will help to continue the idea expressed earlier.
