5 Minute Essay

Writing an essay is as easy as making a cake. As long as the right ingredients are in the mix then a tasty while appreciated treat can be made.

So, what does it take to write an essay. There needs to be an introduction, the main content, and the ending. There needs to be a theme (topic). The subject can be about anything in your imagination. It can be non-fiction meaning it is about a real situation, or fictional written piece meaning it is made up (imaginary). Whatever the content includes there needs to be relation between all parts.


Let’s begin with a fictional character: Once upon a time there were heros named Superman or Superwoman who both possess the power of flight, superhuman strength, x-ray vision, heat vision, cold breath, super-speed, enhanced hearing, and nigh-invulnerability.


Superman and Superwoman are immortal as long as they stay exposed to the yellow sun. Yellow sun radiation is a prime source of power for them both, and due to its effects, they are practically invulnerable to most forms of damage, and are able to live seemingly forever.

Kids look up to Superman and Superwoman as role models because it gives them the courage to do things which they would otherwise not attempt on a regular day. By following one or the other, they learn the differences in moral values too. For instance, learning between good and bad or even understanding other people's suffering and pain.


One weakness that Superman and Superwoman have is the deadly rock known as kryptonite. However, they could also die of old age if they weren’t exposed to earth's yellow sun. But though Superman and Superwoman have “died” multiple times in the comics, they always come back.


Every now and then there is a new Superman or Superwoman film shown at the cinema. Most kids are into Superman or Superwoman films, as they offer good entertainment.


You see that writing an essay isn’t that difficult. Actually, like most things it comes down to making the effort. When there is a will, there is a way!


Learning English is no different, so practice a little everyday and speak fluently.
