CAE ESSAY TOPICS 2

HOW-I-FEEL-WRITING-ESSAYS.

 

If you’re reading this,  it means you’ve already finished brainstorming ideas and writing paragraphs or full essays using the topics  listed in CAE Essay Topics 1.

Don’t forget to use a selection of academic vocabulary that you could find here, here and here , as well as a variety of formal phrases and grammatical structures.

Plan your essay carefully. 5 to 10 minutes may be necessary for you to brainstorm ideas (advantages, drawbacks, examples etc) for the 2 points you’re going to discuss, organize your ideas, find synonyms for the key vocabulary, create strong topic sentences…Do not skip the planning part, even if you think that the essay you are writing is so easy to deal with, as you’ve already discussed the topic in class.

Also, remember that spending 2 or 3 minutes on proofreading is an essential final step in the exam.

Here’s another list of CAE Essay Topics.

For example, some students told me that ubiquitous sounds really nice to them and so does quintessential

My advice for you is to find as many contexts as possible for these academic words, to see how you can make meaningful sentences that sound natural.

So, here’s the new list:
