字幕列表 影片播放 列印英文字幕 Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. Other people prefer to prepare. Need food at home. Which do you prefer? Use specific examples, specific reasons and examples to support your answer. When we first looked at this question, we see at the beginning here two points of view. Firstly, it says, some people prefer to eat at food stands of restaurants and in the second point of view is other people prefer to prepare any food at home. And I know that when we see this initially, maybe our reaction is, Oh, we need to write a discussion essay about this because this is presenting two points of view. But it's not actually the content portion of the question that's important in deciding your essay style. It's the question itself, and if we look at the question itself, it says, which do you prefer and which do you prefer? This is asking us for our personal opinion. It's not asking us to analyze the opinions of other people or it's not asking us to discuss the thoughts or beliefs of other groups of people. It's asking us for our specific opinion and the best way to give our specific opinion is in an argument essay not so much in a discussion essay. So when we see this question, then we know that our our best we be best to write. It is a an argument. It's a style. So now we just, um, maybe go over the breakdown of an argument essay. So an argument essay starts with an introduction paragraph. It has to supporting paragraphs, and it has a conclusion. Paradigm. And in each paragraph there are sentences and the sentences have jobs to do. Now, if we take these away for now and we'll start with the introduction paragraph, let's put the question back up here so we can make sure they were analyzing it. So now we know when the introduction paragraph we need of Akron sentence. We need a detailed background sentence. We need our thesis very important. The main idea of arrested. And finally we need an outline sentence, which tells what points of view I'm sorry, which tells what the supporting paragraph one and supporting paragraph two are going to talk about. Okay, so in the introduction paragraph will have four sentences. I'm gonna take this away and we'll write the four sentences together. So based on this question, uh, the first thing we want to do is we want to give some background information and, um and if we look at the question, well, it's talking about food and a striking about restaurants, and it's talking about opinions about food. So perhaps our first sentence would be something along the lines of opinions. Font up, whips, opinions. So opinions, um, on food. Very, um, tremendously. Opinions on put very tremendously as does and individuals in the jewels. Culinary skill. If culinary, perhaps, is a new word for you, it's anything to do with cooking. Now. The second sentence is a more detailed. It provides more detail about the first sentence, so we might want to state than the two points of view that air that are given in our question. So we might say something along the lines of us some people enjoy. Or it doesn't matter that lake to meet out, while others prefer to stay at home to stay at home and cook for themselves. So this is our background sentence or detailed background sentence, and in the third sentence we state our thesis, and our thesis has to respond directly to our essay question. And it's my recommendation to you to actually pull words right out of your question and use them in your thesis because that will show the the direct link between what your thought is and the entire essays connection to the question. So I hear the question saying, Which do you prefer? So we might say something like for me for to go, uh two. And food stands for restaurants, as opposed to preparing food at home. Okay, for me, I prefer to go to food stands or restaurants as opposed to preparing food at home. So, uh, now this is answered our essay question directly. Question is, which do you prefer? So someone who's reading this essay well, there's no question in their mind what our opinion is. Our opinion is that we like to go to restaurants. We don't like to stay at home and cook. Okay. And then, finally, the last sentence in your introduction paragraph states the three areas that you're going to use to support your thesis on. Before I started recording this video, I kind of had to think about some areas I thought would support the idea of going to a restaurant instead of cooking food at home. And I thought that one area could be convenience because going to a restaurant, it's much more convenient than cooking food in your house. And another area, I thought might be that a restaurant restaurant food is has a better taste or taste better then, uh, cooking for yourself at home. So we want to state thes these two, uh, supporting reasons in our outline sentence, which is the fourth sentence ever. Introduction will state that here. Okay, so, uh, so perhaps eating in this manner is both more convenience and pieced here hands. I will analyze these areas in mine s ing. Okay, So if we read the, uh, introductory paragraph together opinions on food very tremendously, as does an individual's culinary skill. Thus, some people like to eat out while others prefer to stay at home and cook for themselves. For me, I prefer to go to food stands or restaurants as opposed to preparing food at home. Eating in this manner is both more convenience and taste. Your and I will analyze these areas in my essay. So now we've finished the introduction paragraph. We're going to move on to the first supporting paragraph. And we know from our outline this sentence here our outline that the first topic in our first supporting paragraph is the convenience of going to a restaurant. The second supporting paragraph will be about how a restaurant is tastier than cooking at home. Okay, let's make these standard of it better. Okay, so introduction paragraphs, fifth paragraph loops one. So ah, now the first thing that are supporting paragraph is our topic sentence. This is followed by our example or evidence of some kind, followed by a discussion, discussion, sentence and finally a conclusion sentence, which is just a conclusion for the topic. Now the way the sentences work is the topic. Sentence introduces the idea we're going to speak about, which is how restaurants are more convenient. The example is unexamined of how the restaurant is more convenience than cooking at home. The discussion sentence, the discussion sentence explains how the example proves the topic sentence. So the discussion sentence is the link between the example and the topic sentence. Finally, the conclusion. The conclusion links the topic sentence to the thesis, so it shows how the topic sentence proves the thesis, so it keeps Ah, the entire supporting paragraph linked to the Essex. Okay, now we write the sentences together. So talking about the convenience of going to a restaurant, eso perhaps first, a linking word could be like, firstly, Okay, firstly, of course, need to indent eso. Firstly, attending for I'll be eating, uh, in a restaurant can be is much more convenient. Convenience and eating and home. Okay. And before I started this some video, I thought of some examples that could support support. Perhaps one supporting paragraph two. So I was thinking that that as an example for me when I finish working Ah, long day at work, the last thing I want to do is cook a meal for myself. So, um, it's just easier to go to a restaurant and eat a meal at a restaurant. So I thought I'd use that as my example. So, for example, when I finished a long day of work, I often do not have enough time two and prepare a meal for myself, prepare a meal for myself slope at home. Okay, Um and then maybe even further, um, further. Many international restaurants lying in the street where I live for their many international restaurants Landa Street where I live. So I guess this is kind of like two examples, but s o the example is that I don't have enough time to prepare meals for myself at home. And then also there are there are many restaurants very close to my home. So for these reasons, it's just more convenient for me to eat in a restaurant, then to cook at home. Now the purpose of this next sentence this is going to be the the third sentence. Our discussion sentence is to link these examples to our topic. So our discussion sentence would say something like this. Going to restaurants is a much more convenient option for me. Okay. And then finally, the last sentence, all it's doing is linking this whole paragraph to the idea of the topic. So we would say something like this is there for one of the mean reasons I prefer restaurants to cooking. That's home. Okay, So when we look at this last sentence, we're linking it directly to our thesis, which is basically that we like restaurants better than cooking at home. That's what we like to do better now. We finished this the first supporting paragraph. We can move on to the second supporting paragraph if we look back to our introduction paragraph for a moment. We just finished the 1st 1 the first supporting paragraph about how restaurants are more convenience than eating at home. And so the second, supporting Paris is going to talk about how restaurant food is tastier than the food that we can cook at home. So no, just give us a little title. Was supporting paragraph two. Okay, So supporting progress to supporting her up to is talking about how restaurants are tastier than the food we cook at home. So we might start with. Second reason is that's restaurant food always tastes better. Then the food I cook. Um, so, um, I am not talented. Sure, by any stretch and the food's I cook never turn out the way I plan. Okay, so now an example to support This could be perhaps a humorous time in the past, when we tried to cook something and it didn't turn out properly. So maybe, for example, I often overcooked foods to the points that's the are unpalatable, which just means, um not pleasant, so I cooked foods the point where they're not pleasant. Okay, now a discussion sentence. So, like we were saying before the discussion sentence must link this example to our supporting Ah, our story. Our topic for this supporting paragraph two. So we would write something along the lines of maybe for this reason palatable. For this reason, restaurants, restaurant food is consistently a taste your options. And is there for another reason why I prefer buying for buying my meals to preparing them at home? Okay, s So what I've done here is I've combined our discussion sentence with our conclusion sentence. I joined them into one sentence. So here we have. For this reason, restaurant food is consistently at taste. Your option. That's the discussion that's linking our example. Because we say for this reason, and we're linking that to the topic, and then the, uh, the end of the sentence says s. So it is there for another reason. This is there for another reason why I prefer buying my meals to preparing them at home. So because restaurant for his taste year, I prefer buying my meals to making them myself at home. It's Now, the seconds supporting paragraph has been finished. We can move on to the concluding paragraph and the concluding paragraph has three sentences to it. The first is a summary, and this is a summary of paragraph supporting paragraph one and supporting paragraph two. So the two topics we talked about in there that comes into our summary. The second is a restatement. Restatements of pieces. So we're going to say our thesis again in different words. Finally, a prediction. Yeah, a recommendation. Basically what we believe will come true in the future. Based on this s e or what? We want to come true in the future based on this essay. Okay, so now the first thing is to summarize in a sentence what we talked about in paragraph one and what we talked about in paragraph two. So we probably want to see something like, in conclusion, restaurant food is both Maur convenience and taste your then my own cooking. Okay, that's the summary. So we talked about how it's more convenient. And we talked about how its taste your paragraphs one and supporting parents wanted to. The second sentence is a restatement ever thesis. So if we come up back to her introduction paragraph and take a look at our thesis. I prefer to go to food stands of restaurants as opposed to preparing food at home. And we just want to state this again in difference words. So perhaps we could say something like thus, I choose to eat majority of my meals outside my home and strongly refer this to cooking for myself. So that's the re Stephen of thesis. We can choose between a prediction and a recommendation. And I think based on this essay would probably choose prediction. And that prediction would be that are this choice of lifestyle or this choice to eat outside is not going to change anytime soon. So, um so I believe I will continue. Um, this lifestyle, as long has I am a working person. I believe I will continue this lifestyle as long as I'm a working person. Not the greatest conclusion I've ever written, But I'll take it. So that's the S a process from start to finish. So, uh, of course, when you write your essay, you don't want to put titles and like I have I just did that because I wanted to keep it organized that we knew where we were at all times. So let's take out these okay? And if we read the entire essay from start to finish together, we can see how it all connects opinions on food very tremendously, as does an individual's culinary skill. Thus, some people like to eat out, while others prefer to stay at home and cook for themselves. For me, I prefer to go to food stands or restaurants as opposed to preparing food at home. Eating in this manner is Botham or convenience. It is both more convenient and taste year, and I will analyze these areas in my essay. Firstly, eating in a restaurant is much more convenience than eating at home. For example, when I finish a long day of work, I often do not have enough time to prepare a meal for myself at home. Further, many international restaurants lined the street where I live. That's going to a restaurant is a much more convenient option for me. This is there for one of the main reasons I prefer restaurants to cooking at home. A second reason is that restaurant food always tastes better than the food. I cook. I'm not a talented chef by any stretch, and the foods I cook never turn out the way I plan. For example, I often over cooked foods to the points that they're unpalatable. For this reason, restaurant food is consistently a taste your option. And is there for another reason why I prefer buying my meals to preparing them at home. In conclusion, restaurant food is both more convenient and tastier than my own cooking. Thus, I choose to eat the majority of my meals outside my home into cooking for myself. I believe I will continue this lifestyle as long as I am a working person. Okay, that's the essay from start to finish. I hope this video was helpful to you.
