Goal

It’s time to learn how to structure our reviews and when to write them.

You can watch the video or go straight to the written explanation. You decide! Once you’ve finished, you can move to step 4.


WHEN TO WRITE A REVIEW?

A review is usually written for a magazine, newspaper or website. The objective is to describe and express a personal opinion about something (e.g. a film, a holiday, a product, a website etc.) Reviews help the reader know what the item is like. A review will also normally include a recommendation to the reader.

Description and explanation are key functions for review writing. 

STRUCTURE

English Summer Camp Review

The London English Summer camp in Spain is a 4 weeks experience for young and old people who want to enjoy summer holidays and improve their English very fast.

In my opinion it is the best summer camp I have been to, because all the activities are prepared to help you learn and have lots of fun at the same time! I don’t learn new languages fast, it’s very difficult and I am shy, but this summer camp helped me forget about these problems. For me, it was the easiest way to learn a new language.

I recommend this summer camp to students who don’t like studying. You should come and try, because you will have a fantastic time.

 

Dig a little deeper

You can use different expressions when you have a strong or weak opinion.
 
Strong opinion
I believe…
I’m convinced that…
I’m sure that…
I have no doubt…
There’s no doubt in my mind that…
I’m quite certain that…

Medium opinion
I think…
Well, if you ask me…
As I see it…
In my opinion…

Weak opinion
I feel that…
My impression is that…
I am not sure but I am leaning towards…
I tend to think…

Conclusion

Ready? Terrific! Let’s move on to step 3 to practise what you’ve learnt in this step.
