Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a good vacation. We just have three more lessons, and then we'll be finished our course.
Body Paragraph #3:
In today's lesson, we learned about the structure of body paragraph #3. For this paragraph, you need to introduce a counter-argument (=an opinion against your position) and then argue against it with a rebuttal.
When you introduce your counter-argument, you can use this structure:
a. Opponents to (topic) + believe/claim + argument
b. Supports for (topic) + believe/claim + argument
Opponents to nuclear power believe that it is too dangerous.
Supporters for holding the Tokyo Olympics believe that it will help the economy.
For your concluding paragraph, remember to include these part:
1. Complete first draft.
3. Complete Conference Preparation worksheet
4. Blog Comment #9
