Conclusion


DescriptionConclusion is the last paragraph in the essay, which brings closure to the readers and impresses your readers with your persuasive and compelling argument.[4] Generally speaking, the conclusion is a refined and small part with three to five sentences. It could be started with the summary statement sentence to go straight to the themeto avoid winding and confusing the readers. Summary statement is constituted with the argument in the introduction and supporting ideas in the body part. However it is an ineffective way to use the repetitive words in the conclusion because it would seem bland and loses the power of argument and the function of compelling persuasion. [1] Instead, the auther should recognize his/her logic and state the argument and the supporting ideas in the coherent way to create the new meaning or in-depth understanding of the essay to remind the readers what your essay talks about. [2] Beside the summary statement, some closing sentences which serves to make a sense of completeness and broaden the implication are extremelysignificant because it leaves the final impression on the readers .The good conclusion serves the function that the final paragraph should close the discussion without closing it off. [3] Because it leaves a long memory even influence readers' value.Therefore some methods to distinguished conclusion are recommended as following:



1) Matching the introduction.To achieve the completeness and coherency, concluding the essay with the similar scene in the introduction such as a story or a scenario is a sensible choice to drive the readers home about the main idea of the thesis.
2) Using distinguished quotations from the leading scholars in their field or authorized journal to serve your argument and strengthen persuasive power of your paper.
3) Looking for the use of the finding or doing the reflection about your main statement. When you take the new finding from the theory to the practice, you subjectively connect your opinion tightly with the real life and circles surrounding the readers. It is an effective way to transfer your opinion to your readers and persuade them easily rather than force the author’s opinion down the readers’ throats reluctantly.
4) Putting forward the question. Your question about your thesis definitely bring the the readers’ provoking thinking. By pointing out a question, readers are asked to follow the author’s logic and agree with the author’s perspective.
5) As for the academic paper, professional conclusion include the significant meaning and the function of your finding; the limitation of your approach; some reflection and suggestions about the professional field you research in the future. Your should deepen the implication of your finding or put forward with the border meaning of the topic you research to wake up readers’ reflection or expectation [1].
Thereforea successful conclusion requires that the author have a clear brain and know the logic and the target of the paper, point out the advantage and disadvantage of the paper.



Besides the methods applied in the paper, some tips also help to enhance the quality of the conclusion. First to simplify the language and use parallel structure help readers deepen the understanding of the theme and enforce the impression. Then the author is obliged to create a synthesized opinion which has been mentioned above and not leave the important information, neither add new information in the last paragraph. What’s more do not show any doubts in your paper and try to confirm your standpoints in your paper. As we know, before writing a paper, you may read more information about your topic than that involved in your paper. For example each coin has two sides and any theories or points have their advantages and disadvantages, the author could make best use of the advantages but never show your hesitation and doubts on the disadvantages which will cut your authority and confidence. For example, a paper focused on the usage of Skopos in the interpreting, a good conclusion should deal with how to use the theory into interpreting and the good result. Do not end the paper in this way: even though the Skopos help to enhance the effencicy of communication, however I’m afraid that the Skopos theory may result in unfaithfulness in the interpreting. Such closing sentences make your paper unconvincing and unprofessional. Last but not least, the author should have a clear brain and make a summary rather than past many other conclusions from other essays.
After talking about the general methods and tips in detail, a good example of conclusion is showed following to teach readers vividly how to write an acceptable conclusion.





ExamplesThis is a cause and effect essay discussing about why students fall in universities:
From what are said above, we can conclude that different students fail for different reasons.Some fail because they lack proper study methods, some fails because they are distracted by family issues, and still some other students fail because they suffer from shortcomings in their personality. Therefore if we want to prevent academic failures, we should first identify the reasons why they are experiencing trouble in their study, and then help them in the most effective way. It can be hoped that we will all pull through the four years in university and make our dreams and happiness come true. [5]
