5. 5. How to Write the Introduction• The introduction does not have a strict word limit, but it should be as concise as possible. (Abdullah, 2005)• It works upon the principle of introducing the topic of the paper and setting it into a broad context, gradually narrowing down to a research problem, thesis and hypothesis. A good introduction explains how you mean to solve the research problem, and creates ‘leads’ to make the reader want to delve further into your work.
6. 6. • Describe the importance (significance) of the study - why was this worth doing in the first place? Provide a broad context.• Include in your introduction the authors who pointed out relevant ideas about your topic.• Present background information only as needed in order support a position. The reader does not want to read everything you know about a subject.• Organize your ideas, making one major point with each paragraph.• As always, pay attention to spelling, clarity and appropriateness of sentences and phrases.

13. 13. How to Write The Conclusion• Some writers prefer to restate the main points in the conclusion. Other strategies may be used, such as an inspiring quotation, a dramatic example, or an important statistic. If you begin your paper with a question, you may decide to answer the question in the concluding paragraph.• You might also urge the reader to take action on an issue, solve a problem, or change a belief.• Do not make the mistake of introducing new points that were not developed in the body paragraphs. Moreover, never leave the reader hanging, wondering if you forgot to end the paper or left something out. Be sure your ending sounds like an ending, without using conversational language such as, "this is all I have to say," or "this concludes my paper on the topic of _______," or even worse, "The End."
