To write an essay correctly, you need to know and consider the specifics of this genre, because it is different even from ordinary essays.

The work has a narrowly focused topic, it contains a question and pushes the person to think.
The author's position is subjective. The essay reveals the author's view of a particular problem, his worldview, speech, and logic.
The style of speech is conversational. Complex formulations and terms are not typical for essays, long sentences are rarely used. It is necessary to maintain an informal style so that the reader is imbued with an opinion. But using slang and jargon is not allowed, such a text does not correspond to the genre.
The question or problem on the topic is analyzed in detail. On the topic in the essay you need to show the view from different sides, and the opinion to argue with facts.
Be brief. The volume of the essay is not limited, but, as a rule, it is not large.
The construction of the text is not defined by the rules. Just stick to the logic of reasoning, the text should be consistent.
Contradictory points of view should not be stated.
The purpose of the essay is to encourage the reader to reflect on the topic of the work. The author should not prove that his point of view is the only correct one, he should express it competently, so that the reader can think it over and draw his own conclusions.
