If we write an essay which requires us to compare points of view (remember this is indicated in the task words) our paragraph planning and therefore the way we brainstorm is different to the previous type of Task II essay. We need to present both points of view equally then give an opinion as the task words ask us to do. We could therefore present the 1st point of view, in this case second language in the first paragraph, the 2nd point of view – native language – in paragraph 2. Having considered both sides, we write our own opinion in paragraph 3. Again, we will practise this more in later lessons.
