A lot of students find it difficult to write good essays. There is little that you can do to make your essays better or to make the job easier. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Most of the
students
struggle with writing essays due to the fact that they need to know how to develop different paragraphs and how to structure them.
Although
this
task might seem challenging, I believe there are enough
sources
available for them to utilize and improve their writing skills.
Books
and guidelines which are available in all libraries and bookstores are one of the
sources
that can assist learners to improve their vocabulary and grammar. If
students
are equipped with vas vocabulary knowledge and how the grammar works, they surely can rephrase their idea in a number of lines.
However
, they still have to acquire some guidelines on how to form paragraphs. Apart from the
books
mentioned above, there are other
books
where
students
can find guidelines on how to divide their findings into different paragraphs and introduce a thesis statement.
For instance
, they can learn that each essay must have an introduction paragraph, main body, and concluding paragraph.
Moreover
, reading
books
can be a great help in accumulating a great vocabulary and a notion of how to put sentences together in a professional way.
Thus
, it is advisable that
students
increase the number of
books
they read on daily bases.
In addition
, there are other
sources
such
as television programs, radios, news, etc. which affects proficiency unconsciously.

on a daily basis, success in writing great essays is inevitable.
Therefore
