Do you know how to write a basic paragraph this is not only for ESL students this is for everyone around the world even if you speak English even if you don’t speak English this is a very very beautiful basic lesson on how to write small short beautiful paragraph how to write a basic paragraph now.
I also want you to be very careful this is not how to write a 200 word essay for your University exam we don’t have enough time in the world for me to teach you that and I probably forgets so this is very simply how to write a basic English paragraph one two three four rules.
Rule number one is in dent indent what does indent mean indent basically means I learned this when I was child you take your finger you can have a big finger a small finger I don’t care you take your finger or two fingers and you make a little space like so this is called an indentation or indent so indent means you leave a space at the very first line of the paragraph and that’s it you do not leave a space at any other lines in the paragraph only the first line so it’s very important that you only indent mm-hmm the first line of your paragraph like so okay the next thing that you have to do is you have to use a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence now the word that I’ve written is I another rule in English is that every single time you write I it must be a capital so I’m going to write an example sentence for you to illustrate what I mean I I’m a teacher okay this is one sentence.
So rule number three at the end of my sentence I must use a period a period is a dot if you’d like so I am a teacher mm-hmm so what I’m gonna do is my next sentence I’m going to begin it with a capital letter my so I want to say my name. My name is Ronny so what I’ve done rule number one indent rule number two you have to use a capital letter at the beginning of every new sentence.
Rule number three you’re going to use a period at the end of each sentence so that the person reading your beautiful paragraph knows when to stop and take a break for example if I did not have a period here I’d say I’m a teacher my name is Ronny you need to break up your ideas so one sentence has one thought and one period I’m a teacher my name is Ronny next one.
Number four I see this in a lot of students writing the two basic things about a paragraph are the form and the content the form is the most important the form is the indentation and don’t use point form do you know what point form is if you’re typing something on word or on an email point form is also called bullets which bow so bullet means you would put each new sentence on a new line so if I was to write this I’m a teacher then I would put my next sentence here this is not how to make a paragraph this is point form ding-ding-ding-ding so this is bad what I’m going to do is I’m going to write until I almost reach the end of the page don’t write past the end of the page because in your reading in a desk and it gets messy so I have a teacher my name is Ronnie I live so I’m gonna use up all of my line until the end I live in Canada what would you like to know about Canada. Canada is very cold in the winter so as you can see by my example I only stopped my sentence at the end of my paper I don’t use each sentence on each line so for basic things to remember when you’re writing a basic English paragraph the first one is indent the first line of your paragraph only use a capital letter at the beginning of each new line or each new sentence and use a period at the end also don’t forget don’t use point form I’m a teacher my name is Ronnie I live in Canada.
