How do I write an essay? Where do I start?
This is a question I have heard a million times. The answer is always similar. Think of an essay as a sandwich. You will start by choosing the ingredients, the body paragraphs, and then move on to the bread, the introduction and the conclusion. This already provides a comprehensive picture of the required writing process. To write a proper essay, one must write the body paragraphs first, jot down all the ideas. After that, the student should move on to the introduction, and finally to the conclusion. Of course, this is just the starting point, as all essays require editing and more editing, but a rather good one if done right!
Subject: Study Skills
How do I study one hundred years of historical events?
The key to study history lies in ruptures and continuities. By this I mean what changes and what remains the same. To ease the toil of studying by heart, one must take an analytical approach to it. Timelines, lists, key events and major figures: All of these in connection with the natural progression of time will help students obtain a strong grip of historical accuracy to tackle their assignments.
Subject: English as a Second Language
Which is the most important sound of English and how do I pronounce it well?
This is quite an interesting question. Research has shown that the most important sound might be Schwa, also known as the weak a. This sound is present in almost all words, and many times more than once inside the same word. To pronounce this sound correctly, your mouth must be half open and the rest of its organs static. Then, proceed to utter an "a" sound but without moving your mouth or your tongue. The sound produced is called Schwa.
