Learning about the past is a controversial topic.
Moreover

This
essay will argue why,
this
is entirely inaccurate. Despite the great theoretical interest, knowing more about the previous times is not practically

for the those who live in the present moment.
Furthermore
, it is claimed by some that
this
could be a huge waste of time.
For instance
, in Japan History is no longer a mandatory subject that children have to study

Instead
, they focus more on those subjects that are of a living value.
Therefore
, it seems logical to believe that increasing what we know about what was it like a long time ago is not an add-value.
In contrast
, huge benefits could come from knowing more information about the previous human tenses. Because of the original experiences and different circumstances that people had to go through during their existing periods, we can change a lot in our present time for the better.
For example
, the

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
