How do I start a paragraph?

Answer

There are several ways to answer this question, and so, I will try to cover all of the information possible on this topic.

1. Sentence starters are excellent words to use as the first word in a paragraph because they will help you link the ideas of each paragraph together. For example, if the essay is about reasons that Indian food is so tasty, these possible first sentences of the body could be done:

1. First of all, Indian food is wonderful because it uses so many spices...

2. Furthermore, the wonderful taste of Indian food comes from the preparation...

3. Ultimately, the taste of Indian food comes from the variety of ingredients and the creativity of cooks...

2. There are many correct ways to start a paragraph, but in standard English, it is typical to begin each paragraph (except for the first paragraph in an essay) with the topic sentence. A topic sentence tells the main idea of the paragraph. The rest of the paragraph will explain the topic sentence and give examples and reasons to back up that assertion.

In the first paragraph of an essay, you will generally give examples first and then put the thesis sentence at the end of the paragraph. The thesis sentence is the main idea of the whole essay.

3. Finally, in case the question is actually about the formatting of the paragraph, it is important to know that each paragraph in English is indented, and starts with a capital letter (as do all first words in an English sentence).
