A good introduction must have three features. If you have gone through our essays samples ,you'll realize that our introductions possess theses features. Below are the key features of a good essay introduction;

01. It must have a topic.

As an expert, when I go through an essay, I expect to find a topic addressed in the introduction. Please, do not confuse this with the essay subject. You can start by telling the reader what he/she should expect in the entire essay. Do not complicate it. Here, you can start by covering a broad general view of a concept, then narrow it down to the specif concept.

02. It must have a thesis statement.

Towards the end of your introduction, I would expect to see your argument and final stand towards the topic you've introduced. This is what we call a thesis statement. Are you in for it or against the opinion or topic? It must be clearly stated in the introduction section.

03. It must be clear and interesting to read.

Remember, this is the first section of your essay ,and anyone reading your essay will start from this section. It must be clear and free from grammatical error . If you do this, the reader will more likely continue going through your essay. He/she will be interested in knowing what you intend to cover in the next section. Needless to say, this will be the starting point of earning more marks and getting a better grade.
