What is an English summary?

1 Answer

  1. An English Summary is a brief summary of a longer piece of writing/speech. These summaries are often shorter than the original, but that does not make them any less effective.  If you want to write a summary of a longer text, here are some tips:

    1. Read the original piece carefully. You should be able to summarize the main ideas and important facts of the article.
    2. Write down what you think about the original piece. This is your first draft.
    3. Read the draft carefully. Check the order of sentences, the structure of the sentences, the number of words used in each sentence.
    4. Read the summary out loud.
