When writing a main body paragraph for task 2, I recommend aiming for five sentences.
Read the following 5-sentence paragraph. The essay question was: When choosing a job, the salary is the most important consideration. Do you agree or disagree?
On the one hand, I agree that money is necessary in order for people to meet their basic needs. For example, we all need money to pay for housing, food, bills, health care, and education. Most people consider it a priority to at least earn a salary that allows them to cover these needs and have a reasonable quality of life. If people chose their jobs based on enjoyment or other non-financial factors, they might find it difficult to support themselves. Artists and musicians, for instance, are known for choosing a career path that they love, but that does not always provide them with enough money to live comfortably and raise a family.
