Writing an Introduction
Writing an introduction to an essay can be one of the most difficult of writing tasks - how to start? For those of us who stare blankly at the equally blank computer screen which awaits our well-considered words, it can be easier to skip the introduction and come back to it when the rest of the essay is finished. This option doesn't exist in exams, of course, so it is worth learning a few basic rules to help when writer's block hits.
This quiz tests the principles of writing a good introduction.
