Very often, students are faced with a task such as writing an essay. Usually, the main text is written quickly, since this genre implies a small amount, and the main questions are the conclusion. In some cases, this can cause serious difficulties, the author is asked: “What should I write in the conclusion of the essay, and how to finish it correctly?”. In this article we will try to explain why it is so important to correctly complete the essay, and how to do it correctly.
An essay usually does not have strict standards of design and is a free statement of thoughts. But, as a rule, there are some moments that should be followed when building a composition of this genre:
- At the beginning is the introduction;
- Further (in the main part) the thoughts of the author are presented in the form of short theses and supported by arguments;
- Finally, a conclusion is written, which we will talk about.
Properly summarizing is very important when writing any work, including an essay. Firstly, it visually and logically makes the work complete, understandable to the reader: the story is not interrupted, but gradually goes to its completion. Secondly, it demonstrates the literacy and effort of the author of the essay, he really did the work, figured out the topic, studied certain materials, expressed his thoughts and was able to draw conclusions at the end.
So what to look for in the final part of the essay? First, you can repeat the main theme of the work, highlighting the main points that need to be explored. You can also briefly write out the basic ideas on which you once again want to focus the attention of the reader. These indicated earlier should be reformulated in order not to cause repetition. Conclusions on the aspects that have already been mentioned in the introduction or the main part can also be presented in a slightly different form or use special phrases when submitting them. For example, “summing up, I would like to note,” “the analysis showed the following,” “as a result, we can draw the following conclusions,” “the arguments presented earlier suggest that,” “this confirms our idea that,” etc.
You can complete the essay with a beautiful phrase that will make the reader think about the problem posed or call for any action. You can recall a suitable quotation of a well-known personality, a proverb or a phraseological unit, but here, the main thing is not to overdo it and really insert a statement appropriate.
