Once you have a topic sentence, you need to support your topic sentence with reasons.
In Lesson 1.2, for example, you saw a sample topic sentence (I want to go to Vietnam). Why do I want to go to Vietnam? I need to find clear reasons.
How many reasons? To write a convincing (powerful) essay, we often use three reasons.
Here’s an example:
I want to go to Vietnam.
- I want to hear and speak the Vietnamese language.
- I love Vietnamese food.
- I am interested in the people.
