The topic sentence is the most important part of your paragraph. It is often the very first sentence. It has to be clear and to express the main idea.
There are many common mistakes you can make when creating a topic sentence. You should avoid the use of:
When you use facts, it is hard to develop the topic further since it is too specific.
Too general idea
It is also hard to continue your idea if you have too many things to talk about in only one paragraph.
Announcing the topic
Go straight to the topic. You do not need to announce everything you are going to write about.
An example of a TOPIC SENTENCE:
I love bananas because they are convenient, delicious, and nutritious.
