29/09/20: WRITING PROPOSALS

Writing is one of the hardest skills to achieve, but also many students state, they prefer writing than speaking because they have the chance to overthink their ideas much better.

But what exactly a proposal is,  it starts by describing the situation in a business, school, club, or other organisation you might be part of. For example, you might have to talk about the computer room in your college or the state of the canteen in your office. Sounds like a report, doesn’t it? Well so far it’s pretty similar.

The difference between a report and a proposal is that in the latter we have to give recommendations on improving the situation.

You have to persuade whoever is reading the proposal to make the changes you think are best.

So:

  • Describe a situation

  • Say how you think it could be better

  • Try to convince someone you are right.

    You should use headings, and have an intro and conclusion. You CAN use bullet points but in full sentences. Bullet points can help people read something efficiently. Use them with care!

    Oh, and it’s not a letter so don’t start with ‘Dear Sir.
