PROGRESO DE LA LECCIÓN

Goal

Let’s learn how to structure an article by using paragraphs correctly. Once you master this, you’ll love writing articles.


Language Discovery

Let’s answer the questions from the text in step 1:

What is the purpose of the paragraph in blue?

It introduces the topic.

What is the purpose of the paragraphs in red?

They give the most important information about the article.

What is the purpose of the paragraph in green?

It is the conclusion.

Writing an article

You can find an article in a magazine or a newspaper (digital or physical). The purpose is to inform and entertain the reader, so the language used is informal or semi-formal and very descriptive (using a variety of adjectives).

To write a good article you need to separate your ideas into paragraphs:

I feel special

My name is June, I am 76 years old, and I live in Newcastle, England. That sounds quite normal, but my life is not really normal.

What makes my life special is that every weekend I go trekking with my family. I could say it runs in our veins; I don’t know who started it, but I know my father’s grandfather used to go trekking, and now my little granddaughter loves it too. Everything in our life revolves around this sport. Our diet, our way of dressing, the music we listen to, the friends we have and of course our holidays. Every weekend we load our four-by-four with all the best trekking gear you can imagine.

At the moment we are spending a month in Nepal. We are doing the Annapurna Circuit. It’s becoming the trip of our lives. The views here are simply breathtaking. We are trekking along with people from many nationalities. Right now we are staying in a little town called Besisahar located 760m above sea level. We are lodging in a small guest house full of trekking-crazy people. I am enjoying every minute!

Everyone we meet on this trip is always very surprised when they see our family trekking together. It isn’t very common to see a 76 year old woman trekking with her whole family in this part of the world! That makes me feel special and gives me a sense of pride.
