  What's wrong with this letter?

  Can you see that

  it only has one paragraph?

  the paragraph is very long?

  there are several unrelated ideas in the paragraph?

  As a result, the paragraph in this letter is not cohesive.

  You need to revise paragraphs like this.

  To achieve this, you need to know the answer to the following question:

  What is a cohesive paragraph?

  Before you can write a cohesive paragraph, you need to know what a cohesive paragraph is.

  Do you know what a cohesive paragraph is?

  Choose the option that you think best describes a cohesive paragraph.

  1. A cohesive paragraph is one long sentence containing many unrelated ideas or subjects.

  2. A cohesive paragraph is a group of unrelated sentences containing many unrelated ideas or subjects.

  3. A cohesive paragraph is a group of sentences related to one another by a single idea or subject.

  4. A cohesive paragraph is one long sentence containing one idea or subject.

  Learning Point 1

  A paragraph is a group of sentences related to one another by a single subject or idea.

  All the sentences in a paragraph should be related to that one idea.

  If they're related, then the paragraph will be cohesive.
