Concluding Sentence Writing Tips

Many of those who face academic writing assignments keep asking the same question: "What is the secret of a good essay?" There might be different ideas on how to succeed in writing, but we believe that the most important part of every essay is the conclusion sentence. The way you present your topic in the introduction gives the reader the first impression. Depending on whether this impression is good or bad, they will either continue reading or give it up for good. The body is the central part of the essay in which you include essential data, supporting details, examples, as well as provide all the necessary facts. However, it is the concluding sentence that is the cornerstone of everything, for it gives the reader the final impression and leaves them with a lingering aftertaste. In general, even though you might have a perfect introduction and body part, you cannot expect to get a good mark without a decent final part.

You might ask, "So, what is the conclusion sentence and how should I write one?" As the endpoint of the whole essay, the conclusion sentence is the last thing your professor will read and the one that provides the most crucial final statement. To understand the critical aspects involved in executing a perfect conclusion, we recommend you to follow the below guide.

How to Start a Conclusion Sentence

As soon as you have come up with the introduction and body part, it's time to think about the conclusion. The concluding sentence should indicate that the reader has reached the end of the essay, and the best way to do that is to use transition words (we will be providing more information about them in the subsequent sections of our guide). After reading them, the reader will think, "Aha, we're nearing the end," which means that you are now expected to come up with a final statement that will make your reader want to say, "Yes, that's exactly what we've been looking forward to. Everything we've read so far has been leading us to this point." Feeling the pressure mounting yet? And that's exactly why you should do your best to make your final "shot" well placed and perfectly timed.

The Main Idea and Purpose of a Conclusion Sentence

Try to recall one of the movies that made you have conflicted feelings about the plot resolution. It seemed to be a good movie, but the ending was not that strong - and this is precisely what you should avoid having in your essay. The purpose of the last sentence is to answer the big question on everybody's lips, which is: "So what?". You make a claim in the topic of the essay, and it is your job as an author to provide hard evidence in support of your point in the body of your essay. But even then the reader may say, "So what? Why should I care about this claim and your evidence?". And that's exactly what your conclusion's final sentence is there for, its main message being: "Here, I will tell you why it all matters." Long story short, your goal here is to prove the validity of your claim, as well as explain why your supporting information matters and what makes it relevant.

What you should include in your conclusion sentence

Your conclusion sentence isn't just about restating the claim made in the topic. Imagine writing about how cool skateboarding is and coming up with a topic sentence like this: "Skateboarding is the best sport ever!". Let's see what a conclusion sentence for such an essay may look like:

  1. In conclusion, skateboarding is the best sport ever.
  2. In conclusion, skateboarding is the best sport ever because it makes me happy, keeps my body in shape, and improves my mood.
  3. In conclusion, skateboarding is the best sport ever because, much like life itself, it's an action-packed activity.

The first one is just restating the topic statement. The second one is slightly better, but you may still ask: "Why? Why does it make you happy?". And only the third conclusion provides a well-substantiated answer to the "So what?" question. Therefore, when trying to come up with an effective conclusion, make sure to explain to your readers what point your essay is trying to convey and why it's so important. Also, keep in mind that a concluding sentence is not just about going back to where you've started - its goal is to give the original topic a whole new dimension by broadening it.

Conclusion sentence examples

Let's check out two examples of well-crafted conclusion sentences:

  1. Topic: Matter is everywhere.
    • Body: Matter is... (provide evidence that everything solid, gaseous, and liquid is matter).
    • Concluding sentence: Indeed, the matter is everywhere around as we face it in all possible forms and manifestations.
  2. Topic: The best time to take up piano lessons is between ages 4 and 10.
    • Body: At this age, kids memorize things quickly and easily. They are not yet overloaded with high school assignments, so it's a perfect time to start playing the piano.
    • Conclusion sentence: All in all, parents should encourage their children to take up piano lessons at an early age.

Some simple yet effective tips for your conclusion sentence

We've prepared some tips on how to create a great concluding sentence that we'd like to share with you. Please, note that they also include information about the things you should avoid:

  • Try to avoid simply restating the topic sentence. Think of your final sentence as a trip with a destination, not a circle that ends where it starts.
  • Don't use phrases like "in my opinion," "I believe that," "this is why," "these are the reasons," etc. You shouldn't share your opinion on something nor tell your readers what's been already stated in the body part. Let it be a conclusion and nothing more than that.
  • Use words like "indeed," "in short," "all in all," "clearly," "as shown in the essay," "overall," "finally," "lastly," etc.

Our tips might seem too obvious, but still many people keep forgetting about these simple truths. Ending an essay is as important as writing the introduction because it is the highpoint of your paper which determines your future result. We hope this guide will help you finish your paper in the best way possible and get the highest grade! Good luck!
