Short Essay Writing Practices Series were written for my niece,
who needed to attend the exam for entering the colleges in Taiwan.

 Tips you may need to know for short essay writing

1. 邏輯順序
: To begin with, First, Second, More to that, Third, Moreover,
Furthermore, Finally, At last, To conclude,  Most important of  all, To sum up

2. 在提出主要論述之前: According to a recent report,  A current study indicates
that --- , Some experts (sceientists) strongly believe that ---,
A science statistics indicates that ..., According to a recent research, ---

3. 表示委婉語氣 : may, might, can, could, would, sometimes, often, usually,
maybe, perhaps, probably, should

4. 轉折語氣: then, although (記得後面不加 but), however (同方向,論述略有轉變 ),
but (相反方向論述 ),  neverthless, while, on the other hand, after all, anyway,
on the contrary  

5. 多蒐集好的形容詞 (名人談話、現代經典影劇對白、經常出現在英文工具書或使用說明上)
 : ( 部分可變化為副詞使用) great, nice, good, wonderful, terrific, fantastic,
dramatic, fabulous, amazing, really, tremendous, current, recent, innovative,

6. 表因果或目地 (consequence or purpose ) : why, because of --, thus,
so .... that, ...too ...to ..., be enough to, Perhaps that is the reason why,
Maybe because of, Due to, To, In order to,

7.
 盡可能在第一段就提出你的主要論述 (Thesis Statement),避免行雲流水、柳暗花明
式寫法

8. 在第二段舉2、3個例子來支持你的論述,最好有具體事例如數據、年代、地點、時間、
人物、事件 等( 最少 2 個 )

9.在第三段以不同方式 (或再repeat 一次) 將第一段的主要論述再陳述一次以做為結論

10.值得搜集並多用的好詞 : not only ... but also, in terms of ..., as far as I know,
as far as I'm concerned, to deal with,
speaking of .., a variety of,
various kinds of, not....until.., as well as,  S+be busy+Ving,
as well as, S+spend--time---V+ing ---,

11.選擇動詞優先順利: 一般動詞 (最直接有力), be動詞 (次之), 被動式 (最弱,除非語意上須要,少用)

12.多蒐集好的動詞 : (建議能表現現代感都會感用語) 
suggest, believe, indicate, deliever a sense of..., suppose, S+help+V,
A+help+B+V.., contribute to, learn, enjoy, lead to,
