This is a suggested plan for an essay on the following topic:
“Today a lot of different cultures and ethnic groups live together in one country. Why is this so and do you think this is a positive or negative development?”
In the introduction paragraph you should first explain about the situation, mention its reason and consequences:
Example: Due to the highly developed technology, advanced communication channels and massive amounts of information delivered by media about various countries, people get more motivated to leave their home country and move somewhere else in the world. In turn, this creates a situation where well-developed and thus desired countries are getting filled of a mixture of cultures, all brought by immigrants. As beneficial as this development is to the well-being of a country, it’s drawbacks shouldn’t be forgotten.
