Do you sometimes struggle to begin writing an essay when taking an exam? Good news! There is an important writing skill that will help you improve your essay introductions. This technique is called "paraphrasing", and it means rewriting something using different words. In this lesson, I will teach you how to paraphrase successfully and how to change essay questions into your own words. These skills are very useful for university and high school students, as well as any students writing English proficiency exams like the TOEFL or IELTS.

My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you something very important for if you're taking any type of test that has a writing component. So, if you are taking the IELTS, the TOEFL, the CELPIP, even just a university test, it can be any type of test, but if you're asked to write something like an essay or a paragraph, this video is for you. Okay? So I'm going to teach you a very important skill that will help improve your marks when it comes to writing on tests. So, let's get started. So, I have here an essay question. This question is actually... I've seen it on the IELTS. You know, you have similar types of questions on the TOEFL, sometimes in university. The question is this: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Do you agree or disagree?" Or maybe: "To what extent do you agree or disagree?" So, this is an example of a question you might be asked. Now, a problem a lot of students have is in their answer to this question. They see this, and they think: "Okay, education is the most important factor in the development of a country, yes, I agree." So then they... Or: "I disagree", and they start writing. And what do they write? Usually the very first thing students will write is this: "I agree that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country because..." So, what is the problem with this? Is there any problem to start off your essay with something like this, or to start off your answer? There's a big problem. So I want you to take a moment and think: "What could be the problem with starting your essay off with this sentence?" Okay, well, if you noticed, you have here the word: "education, education, is, is, the single most important, most important factor". If you notice, these are the same. They're the exact same, except for: "I agree that" and "because". The student, here, has used the exact same wording that is in the question. So, if you do this on the IELTS-and many students do this, same with on the TOEFL-you actually will lose marks, and same with in university, because you're not showing your abilities; you're just copying what somebody else has said or what the essay question is. So, in this video, I'm going to show you first off... First off, I'm going to tell you: Don't do this, don't copy. And I'm going to teach you ways in order to improve yourself and your answer by changing this wording. How can you change your introduction so it's different than what the question is? Okay? So, let's look at how to make these changes. Okay, so what we are going to do in order to change the question into a proper answer that doesn't just copy the question, is we are going to paraphrase. So, the word here is: "paraphrase". This might be a new word for you. What does it mean to paraphrase something? Well, when we paraphrase, it means we take a sentence that, you know... We take somebody else's sentence and we change it into our own words. Okay? So, we change the words of a sentence, we also change maybe the sentence structure, but we keep all the same meaning. Okay? So, the meaning from the sentence you copy, it stays the same, same meaning, but different words and different sentence structure. Okay? So it's in your words, but this other person's meaning. So, we are going to paraphrase this example of a question into our own words. So, first we're going to look at how to do that using vocabulary and synonyms. So, we have here the same question: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country." How can we put this into new words or our own words that keep the same meaning? Well, we can use synonyms. So, this might be a new word for you, too. A "synonym". "Synonyms" are words that have the same meaning, but are different words.

The steps can be employed in writing any form of essay or term paper.
STEP 1: CHOOSE A TOPIC
Choose a topic of your interest or simply acquire help from the teacher. Your attitude towards the so picked topic could influence the effort put into your research.
Select a theme you can manage. Avoid subjects that are specialized or those that have a narrow range of source materials.
STEP 2: FIND INFORMATION
Here you can search the Net to get the general or basic information. You can use search engine as a start point. To find books in the library you can use the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog).
As you gather your information, remember to write down the full bibliographical information. This is important because an article without bibliographical information is useless, as you cannot cite its source
STEP 3: STATE YOUR THESIS
Have your thesis statement written down in one statement. This statement is like an affirmation of your belief. The main part of your essay will consist of arguments to support this belief.
STEP 4: MAKE A TENTATIVE OUTLINE
All points must relate to your topic. The purpose of having a tentative outline is to help you go through your topic carefully and in an organized manner. This is the most important step in writing a good essay. In your outline, include an INTRODUCTION, a BODY, and a CONCLUSION.
STEP 5: ORGANISE YOUR NOTES
This is the most important stage in writing a research paper. Organize all the gathered information carefully according to your outline. Here you analyze, sort and digest the information gathered and learn something about your topic. Do not include information that is not relevant and others that you do not understand. Plagiarism is definitely out of question. Remember to note down the bibliographical of each cited paragraph.
STEP 6: WRITE YOUR FIRST DRAFT
Write in order of your outline. Do not worry about making mistakes as this is just a draft not the final paper. And before you know it you will have a completed and organized paper as per your outline.
STEP 7: REVISE YOUR OUTLINE AND DRAFT
Read your paper carefully checking for any content error. Arrange your ideas to follow your outline. If necessary, reorganize your outline but keep the purpose of the paper in mind. From here you will have a final paper.
STEP 8: TYPE FINAL PAPER
Read the assignment sheet to ensure your essay meet the requirements as specified by your teacher. Proofread your final paper for spelling, punctuation, missing or duplicated words. Make sure that your final paper is clean, tidy, and attractive.
